Mieke is an artist inspired by the natural world around her. The landscape of Margaret River lends the perfect playground for this connection to nature. Mieke enjoys exploring the outdoors, ocean swimming, trail running and surfing the challenging waves that brought her from South Australia to the West. This love for nature inevitably finds its way into her creative expression.
Mieke divides her creative energy broadly, between different media including watercolour and natural resin painting, drawing, children's book illustration, pottery and woodwork.
Mieke appreciates the role that both books and art play in sparking imagination, curiosity and creativity in all ages and demographics. She is currently working on writing and illustrating three of her own books as well as illustration for a few local authors. Her illustration extends to logo and graphic art, labels, album covers, interior art. She threads a fun and colourful style into all.
