Nienke graduated in 1997 at Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam, in the field of theatre design.
As theatre is always a ‘Gesamtkunstwerk’ Nienke likes to involve multiple art disciplines which together form a whole.
The visual work of Nienke Brokke always has a context with a narrative element. Thanks to this narrative side, Nienke Brokke also designs education projects, in addition to landart and theater decors. Nienke is active in her local Neighbourhood as well as in formal and informal education. The variety of activities Nienke organises can be from stop-motion-animation to life size sand-castling. Always she encourages the participants to involve their own stories and become artistic owners too.
Nienke’s natural habitat is in nature, encouraging creativity.
In landscapes she searches for contrasts in shape, meaning and or gender.
