Nienke Izurieta is a visual artist and classically trained musician currently based in Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada. The primary focus of her artistic practice is working with medium format film.

In her latest portrait work, she explores the multidimensionality of her subjects by incorporating layers and movement through in-camera technique. The results are emotionally charged imagery that suggest timelessness of an ethereal quality.

Her involvement as an arts advocate and educator over the last 10 years covers a broad range of experience from intrinsic music instruction for at-risk youth to teaching photography workshops.

Nienke holds a BSc. in Photography from the Art Institute of Philadelphia.
