Marieke Ackerman is from Driebergen in the Netherlands. She has immersed herself in painting and sketching from a very young age.
Inspired by her mother and grandfather, Marieke’s passion is painting plein air and she developed her skill through painting with acrylics, followed courses at Doet Boersma and James Tatum, etc.
She now paints mainly in oils where she attempts to capture the vibrancy of the locations she chooses and only works in her studio if the weather is inclement.
Using large, sweeping brush strokes and a palette knife, she manages to avoid too much detail and loves capturing the essence and ambience of a scene in her vibrant, colourful works.
