Jan Schiltmeijer attended a school in Amsterdam – Hervorm Lyceum Zuid. As stated on his art website, Schiltmeijer grew up in Amsterdam where he attended a course from 1999 until 2002 and achieved a Junior* Academy for Art-Direction.

After working in art direction for two years, he began painting full time and in 2004 soon realised he was able to make people happy through his work.

Before marrying his wife and moving to the US, Schiltmeijer said he had built “quite a clientele without ever creating a website” but he is now located in New York after deciding it was “time to make new friends and expand.”

In terms of his art, Ruffin’s husband offers original acrylic paintings in a layer-over-layer style, providing deep rich colours and vivid images. He specialises in portraits.
