I was born on a small island (Zuid-Beveland) in the South of the Netherlands as Ineke Oele and I developed an artist’s eye in my childhood. The soul of my country was influenced by the subtle light that made painters before me famous. At eighteen I started a study of five years at the prestigious Royal Academy of Fine Arts in The Hague, Holland. After getting a Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic Design, I became a teacher at the same institution and earned an MFA. My professional path after that went from stage set designer through photographer, art director to decorative painter.

I was feeding the soul by traveling to new places.

At the age of 37 I decided to focus on becoming an all round professional painter. The freedom the life of an artist promised me was very attractive. I moved away from my home country the Netherlands to live in St Vincent and the Grenadines, West Indies. The demand for various decorative projects was high as I moved from island to island, surviving the harsh reality of the Tropics. A year after I met my (now ex-) husband Keith Trump on the Island of Canouan, we moved to Miami where I successfully developed my company Oele llc. I specialized in wall finishes with the use of pigments and painting murals. At the same time I taught herself to paint at the Manasota Beach Club in Englewood.

In 2006, Jacobina (The only name given at birth) became a U.S. citizen. I am an established muralist and artist, have painted murals for corporate offices, restaurants, doctor’s offices and private residents in Miami where I lived at one time. One of my murals graces the walls at the Law firm of Adams and Adams and my paintings are on exhibit at www.jacobinatrump.com

Art is healing the soul

It took many years and experiences to understand my own karma and how I repeated this all through my life in various situations.I was always building on moving ground and lost everything I had build when the forces of nature bundled. This was in line with the fate of my ancestors and therefor a powerful issue to deal with. By painting and writing I dissolved it and when I studied the Akashic Records I understood what was going on.

In 2010 I finished the largest mural in my life for the University of Miami, two panels of 14x38feet.

Since 2013  I started to study the Akashic Records. This is a part of the unseen world I always wondered about. I wanted to know about negativity in myself and others. I wanted to know how the world works and how I could use it to the best of my abilities.
