ANNEMEIKE - Original Art
Annemieke’s artwork are all original pieces inspired by life. As a child she was always encouraged to be creative . Upon leaving school she followed a varied career path as it opened up for her, and while living in Australia she was introduced to dot painting through a fellow artist and friend. With acrylic paint and dot technique Annemieke births visible emotion. Her subject matter is fed by life events, with emotional, spiritual and biographical themes incorporated. Her colour selection grows from mood, theme and intuition. Her comfort with this intricate and challenging form, style and medium has led to the creation of numerous original pieces, including many larger works.
Born in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, Annemieke immigrated to New Zealand with her family in 1981. They enjoyed the range of their new home country before settling in Dunedin.
Exhibiting in Australia and New Zealand, Annemieke’s successful Perth exhibition with a fellow artist and photographer led to further exhibitions and competitions, with her work selling locally. After spending seven years in Australia she decided to move home to New Zealand with her young family and settled in the idyllic seaside village of Karitane.
