About the Artist
Aitje Nap Jager was born in the Netherlands in 1949. Her interest in art developed during her teenage years and intensified during her education as a kindergarten teacher. After immigrating to Manitoba Canada in 1977, she took up Art courses at the Red River College for a number of years and participated in numerous juried art shows in Winnipeg, Portage la Praire, and Carman, Manitoba. After moving to British Columbia, Aitje took a break from her art work until the summer of 2020.
In the summer of 2020, inspired by their beautiful garden and a great deal of free time due to the Covid-19 pandemic Aitje picked up her passion for painting and has since held 2 art exhibits. Her Art Al Fresco exhibit took place in the surroundings of their lovely garden and included other curious works of art.
