I approached Mienke about doing a profile of her. Mienke was kind enough to let me film her as she made a marionette of a foal. We had some great discussions about puppetry and how it still plays a role in our lives. Mienke is an accomplished artist and was invited to give a talk in Bialystok, Poland at the International Conference Dolls and Puppets as an Artistic and Cultural Phenomenon 2014.
