Her work as an autonomous artist focuses on documentary and portrait photography, and analyses the complicated role of women in contemporary society. Willemieke is driven by personal observations, discomfort, and questions she asks herself. The friction these elements create are the starting point for her artistic process. Her self-initiated projects dive into the image of women we are exposed to, but also how women see themselves; this image often arising from visual culture. Showing women in roles that society does not consider self-evident, is a reoccurring theme in her work.
