Fine Portrait Artist
Mieke is an artist and Catholic youth minister based in Marlborough, New Zealand. In 2004 she graduated from NMIT in Nelson, with a Bachelor of Visual Arts. Her preferred area of work lies in portraiture, with oil paint, but conceptual landscape works, murals and other media are also part of her portfolio. she has been drawing and painting people since she can remember, and loves the challenge of capturing the personality of each subject she works with. Keeping a high standard of technical quality is paramount, and she is a proficient and skilled teacher of painting and drawing techniques. Since working with young people for the last 9 years, a compassion has grown for the pressures and issues that they have to deal with. A main focus for her art from now on will be the concept of being an advocate for youth through art.
Portrait and mural commissions are also very welcome.
