Simone Jansen shares how you can live multiple dreams
“Do you dare to tell something about your life?” asked Floris ten Duis. Floris is curious; his questions are pure and intuitive. With his platform Go Do It -live late this year- his goal is to empower people with different backgrounds to fulfill their dreams. And to that end, he puts exceptional entrepreneurs and game-changing leaders in front of Bennie Mentjens’ camera. Have a look!
The beginning of the Gallery
“Anything you can imagine, you can create”.
This is the core belief of Simone. In addition to a management career, building a house herself was always one of her dreams.
Simone bought the 520m2 property in 2018, made plans and started working with a contractor to renovate it. After a couple of months of construction, the house was not finished and the budget was tight. “I’m going to finish it myself,” Simone decided. She taught herself jobs and she went to work on the weekends. Pouring her own floors, fixing ceilings and walls, designing furnitures by re-using second hand items. She created architraves instead of doors, build her own bed from steel and created four meter long lamps.
This was how ART[s] Gallery Simone Jansen was created in 2021. An attractive house with big walls, perfect for beautiful, inspiring art. Her passion for art, crafts, interior design and architecture all come together. Artists are given a unique place where they can exhibit their works. Art lovers can visit the works in a beautiful place.

ART[s] expands her exhibition space
The most inspiring art gallery in the Netherlands, that’s what we strive for. In September we installed long tracks, suspension systems and countless light spots in the top floor of the house. ART[s] Gallery Simone Jansen is thus expanding to 415m2 and 150 artworks per exhibition. We can’t wait to show the results in the coming expositions.
ART[s] in collaboration with Oger and Nilson
ART[s] Gallery put together the art collection for the ‘Oger x Nilson’ couture bed, where quality, comfort and luxurious Italian fabrics come together.
We supplied two painted canvases by Kaye McGarva, the lamp ‘Rise’ by Jule Cats and a beautiful mirror by Quinda Verheul. We also placed bronze sculptures of Hetty Blankesteijn. Art adds the finishing touch in any room!
happy client, happy us
“When you know, you know. It’s a feeling. One that we got when we were stood in front of Sophie de Vos astonishing photography. We were immediately taken in by the story behind her work. Truth is, we happened to be at ART[s] Gallery Simone Jansen by pure luck. And I’m glad that we were. Simone’s team is outstanding. Not only did they print the works to dimensions that would fit into our home, but they also took care of delivery and installation. They truly deserve a golden star.” – Jeanne-Marie en Kees
