Mimi van der Merwe was born in 1934 and grew up in Malmesbury, near Cape Town. She studied literature at the University of Stellenbosch and did a three year diploma in Fine Art at the Stellenbosch Technical College at the same time, under Edith ten Kate.

In 1960 she went to Brussels where she studied painting and etching at the Academy Royale. In 1961 and 1962 she specialised in etching at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris, under Professor Jean E. Bersier. In 1961-62 she obtained a bursary from the French government, and at the end of her studies she obtained the Prix de l`Atelier.
