Jennie Smallenbroek was born in 1966 in the Netherlands. For 28 years, she trained herself in the methods of the Old Masters. She is a fulltime professional artist residing in her native country, but travels extensively to paint and further her education as an artist. Jennie Smallenbroek paints a wide range of subject matter including figurative, still life and religious themes.
Jennie studied at the Florence Academy of Fine Art in Sweden in 2016 and at the Angel Academy in Florence in 2015 and has done masterclasses with Cornelis Le Mair en Sam Drukker. She has opened her own academy in 2012, which lasted for 5 years, the doors were closed in June 2017. 

Her work is featured in galleries in The Netherlands, Belgium and England and is part of private collections. Jennie Smallenbroek's exhibits include the Florence Biennale and the Edinburgh Art Fair.
 In 2015 she is appointed to "ARC Living Artist" at the Art Renewal Center, an  organisation dedicated towards the revival of the realistic "Fine Arts". 
"With my art I wish people to feel the Peace, freedom and love I felt when I was painting. That the essence of these feelings will light up through the paint and touch the hearts of the people who see my work. The gift that God has given me is not just to paint a picture, but to help people discover their own joys of life and inner well-being by watching and experiencing my paintings, which are often a message to the world for Peace, Freedom and Love. And to share these thoughts so that everyone can be lifted up and awaken to the beautiful world that I see through everything."
