A native to Los Angeles, Janssen has been painting since the age of four. Graduating with a BFA from Cal State University Long Beach, his focus was life painting. Through years of experimentation, he took that concept of bringing the human figure to life on canvas and took it to another level by incorporating abstraction. Big, bold, organic forms containing line, color, and shading, all play major roles in his compositions. Janssen’s pieces reflect a combination of nature and organic, human form. Working out of his studio in downtown L.A., his paintings have fallen into the hands of such clients as Jennifer Aniston, Chelsea Handler, Lucy Lui and Jeff Lewis.
