Marieke Ackerman


Marieke Ackerman has been drawing and painting since she was young. She was inspired and encouraged to do so by her mother and grandfather. She developed her painting skills with acrylics. She followed various painting courses at Doet Boersma, James Tatum and Roos Schuring. Marieke finds her inspiration in nature. Her work covers a wide spectrum of landscapes. Marieke looks for light or beautiful colours. In her paintings she tries to capture the essence and ambience of the location. Mariek prefers to paint en plein air. Her style is loose and she paints with clear brushstrokes and with thick, juicy paint.
