Willem Noordijk was born on May 6, 1887 in Schiedam. At a very early age, his love for nature made him take up the palette to portray what he believed to be within his reach, but he soon noticed his shortcomings and lack of proper guidance. That is why he visited the Academy for Visual Arts in The Hague for quite some time. He was a student there between 1914 and 1917 under the direction of Frits Jansen and in the meantime also acquired the sign M.O.
In the spring of 1914, he was awarded the Royal Grant for young painters, which he retained until 1917. In his early years he made excellent works of peasant people and figures such as Volendam and Huizer Vissers. He also painted in the vicinity of The Hague and the Veluwe. In 1920 he had an exhibition at Kunsthandel J.J. Biesing at 65 Molenstraat in The Hague, where he exhibited 53 works, including a self-portrait (see top left). Later he painted landscapes, animals and flowers. Het Gooi attracted him to such an extent that he eventually went to live and work there
Willem Noordijk painted, drew and etched in the impressionist style. He was a member of the artists' association "St. Lucas" in Amsterdam.
