Born in 1956 in Folkestone, the United Kingdom, Ann Veronica Janssens today lives and works in Brussels. After earning a degree in art history in England, she pursued her studies in Belgium at the École nationale supérieure des arts visuels of La Cambre. Combining painting, sculpture and light – both natural and artificial – her work has been shown internationally since the early 1990s. In 1999, she represented Belgium with Michel François at the Venice Biennale. And she has exhibited at numerous institutions in Europe and the United States.
Recently, several solo shows have focused on her work, in 2017 at the Institut d’art contemporain of Villeurbanne (France) and in 2018, at the Baltimore Museum of Art (USA). Working in both the public domain and the world of museums and art institutions, she created a neon piece in 2012 for Geneva, stained-glass windows in 2013 for the Chapelle Saint-Vincent in Grignan (France), and is currently completing a commission for Université Paris Diderot.
