Jeanette Lassen studied at the Putney School of Art in London before spending some time at Edinburgh College of Art as a mature student. She is noted for her exquisite taste and application of design and colour complimented by subject matter with extravagant opulence, invariably tinged with optimism and seldom without humour.

In 1990 she took part in an exhibition of Scottish painters in Tokyo. She exhibited widely throughout Scotland and England: The City Art Gallery (London), The Kingfisher Gallery (Edinburgh) and The Castle Gate Gallery (Cockermouth) to name a few. Before her death in 2008, Lassen was also commissioned to produce paintings for The Bank of Scotland, Sainsbury’s Head Office and for the P&O Shipping Company liner Aurora, leaving a strong body of work behind her.
