Miertje believes that art is often seen and felt as an enlightening and emotive personal experience. The visual language of spontaneous shards of dynamic colours against delicate, subtle hues, is how she expresses her artistic voice. In an abstract form, she likes to engage others in their own perceptions of what they see. She believes that everyone assimilates their environment and life's experiences individually and depicts her work on canvas with varying overlays of transparent and opaque paints. Even though the subject and meaning of each work is apparent to her, it is still through the eyes of the observer and their interpretation that their communication is validated.
She paints the universe and her surroundings in a vivid explosion of colors, movement and energy.
