MIEKE ELZINGA, Dutch (especially digital) painter, portraittist, selfie-ist.


With ‘selfies’ we present ourselves on social media. To make us look better we use all kinds of filters and we create a virtual image, a world of make believe.

I take selfies,  capturing myself in daily situations and emotional moments.

By using filters, I do not want to make myself more beautiful on the ‘outside’ but I want to show more of my ‘inside’, my emotions, vulnerabilities and the person I am.

Without using any paint or paintbrush I create digital portraits that leave room for your own fantasy and personal interpretation.

My work is available on different sizes and materials.


My paintings and drawings are ‘portraits’ of my fantasy, memories and emotions. 


My pictures are ‘portraits’ , moments of my life and the way I see the world.
