Human behaviour plays a major role Mirthe's work. She always tries to find ways in which she can portray subjects such as fear, irrationality, truth and lying. Her work is often not a literal translation of the subject into an image, which creates space that can be filled in on the basis of someone's own experiences.
She gets her inspiration from nature and the objects around her, where she finds metaphors that she uses for her drawings, screen prints, animations, linocuts and ceramics.
