About

rita wiersma

Rita Wiersma (1965) is a visual artist who grew up in Leeuwarden, the Capital of Friesland, the northern provence of The Netherlands.

Today she lives in Burum, and is happy and proud to be living in this rural area.

Nature helps connect to our real world and escape potentially stressful distractions from society.

Darkness, fresh air, wide horizons and quietude are the most striking elements you will find in this beautiful landscape.

Leading to a sea of inspiration.

How the fishermen lived and worked along the Frisian Wadden coast. How the sea and the tides are influencing the natural world of the wetlands.

Art has always been a passion since childhood and her love of nature, music and interest in healing led her to this creative way of living.

From the natural elements found in the countryside she creates trough various mediums.

Materials that age such as bare wood, metal, paper and fiber.

A receptive playfull style that has a strong emphasis on beauty.

An emotional reaction to color, sounds and form in the natural world.

She believes if one listens to their gut instincts, and follows their heart despite seemingly difficult feats, that any dream can be achieved and she remains open to the mystery of where this journey will take her next.
