Johanna (Jo) Koster was born in Kampen as the third in a family of eight children. Three sisters died as a child. Because her father was a professional officer, the family often had to move. Jo went to the Middelbare Meisjes School (mms) in Dordrecht. She also received painting lessons from Roland Larij, a specialist inblandscapes, interiors and portraits, genres that Jo would also study.
At the age of seventeen, Jo Koster left for Amsterdam for an education at the Rijksnormaalschool voor Teekenonderwijs. According to a fellow student, she was "a hardworking girl" and "the only one of the girls in the big class who had become successful" (Obreen, 244, 245). With her teachers certificate, she continued her education in 1888 at the Academie van Beeldende Kunsten in Rotterdam. She also taught the students of the afternoon course. In 1891, she exhibited for the first time, in a group exhibition of painters in Amsterdam.
