Marieke Ackerman has been drawing and painting since she was very 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, Roos Schuring and Hans Versfelt. In 2020 she started to paint with oil paint.

Marieke finds her inspiration in nature. Her work covers a wide spectrum of landscapes. Marieke looks for light or beautiful colours to paint. In her paintings she tries to capture the essence and ambience of the location. 

Marieke Ackerman lives in Driebergen (The Netherlands).
