Meike van Riel - Artist

The artist Meike van Riel was born in Utrecht in the Netherlands and has been painting in her studio there for over 15 years now.
Creativity has always been an essential part of her life and remains an important driving force in her artistic development.

Although Meike was accepted to study at the Academy of Arts, she decided to follow her intuition and carry on independently. Her underlying motivation is that her personal development is more important and she prefers to continue exhibiting and exploring her own unique and quirky style.

Meike began her artistic journey by using acrylic paint and then developed her own technique that combines "action painting" and regular painting. Since then she has been developing her own techniques and compositions and her work has been steadily evolving with the knowledge and skills she has acquired along the way. Lately she has been working with oil paints and exploring the use of organic structures and forms in her artwork and the modelling of sculptures in bronz.

In the past five years Meike has held regular exhibitions in Utrecht and other cities as well as appearing in an American catalogue of international contemporary artists (vol. VIII) in 2014.
