Mir (ミリ in Japanese) is short for Mirijam
Meer van Mir = ‘More of Mir’ in Dutch
Mirijam Neve ミリ is an illustrator from Europe (the Netherlands & Germany). She grew up living on her family’s boat, traveling along the rivers and canals of western Europe. Colorful life on, and in the water, is a recognizable theme in her illustrations.
Mirijam studied Illustration at the Willem de Kooning Academy in the Netherlands, with a minor in graphic (hand printing) techniques, and a semester Textile Design in Luzern Switzerland.
In Okinawa (Japan) she is learning Bingata from local artisans. Bingata is a traditional textile dye resist technique, similar to batik.
