JENS MALMGREN I create, that is my hobby.


The velvet leaves of roses are so perfectly beautiful and so alluring to capture and yet so disappointing when most attempts are less appealing compared to the real thing. I am not a gardener; I am an artist and my approach to something beautiful is that I prefer to make reproduction that at least equally beautiful and preferably even more beautiful than the original. It is a tough challenge for roses. This is a search. My search. These paintings are made in aquarelle technique.

I was born 1967 in Stockholm, Sweden. I grew up in the small village Vågdalen in north Sweden. 1989 I moved to Umeå to study Computer Science at University of Umeå. 1995 I moved to the Netherlands where I live in Almere not far from Amsterdam.

Here on this site I let you see my creations.
