Marijke Wijgerinck is based in Zoetermeer. She graduated at the former Academy of Fine Art and Art Education in Amersfoort. Since then she worked both as an artist and teacher of art. Her work is about skin, landscape and memories. She starts with the concept and uses materials that are fitting the stories she likes to tell. Often the location is part of the work.
Since 1992 she exhibited in The Netherlands and abroad like Belgium, Germany, Poland, India, Russia and China. She was commissioned for several art projects and permanent works of art.
In Japan she is experiencing Japanese paper to use it in a 3-dimensional way.
