Mieke is a Canadian and Dutch mother and photographer, living in London, in the UK.
She likes to look at ordinary things differently, rather than document what is obviously in front of her. She seeks out simple lines or moments of stillness amidst chaos.
Mieke shoots intuitively and hopes to convey a mood or feeling. Her images are of unguarded, contemplative moments. They are often low key and moody.
She draws inspiration from the gorgeous light and rich, sombre colours used by the old Dutch Masters of the 17th century, to direct the eye of the viewer.
Mieke is a member of the Royal Photographic Society, Photofusion, Shutterhub and of the Clapham Photographers' Collective. She is a contributor to Vogue Italia.
Her images have won numerous awards, most recently, the Chromatic International Photography Awards and British Photography Awards 2019 and have been exhibited with Royal Photographic Society, Putney School of Art, Photofusion, Shutterhub, and the Clapham Photographers' Collective. Her work will be exhibited this May with LoosenArt in Rome and ImageNation in Paris.
