It is documented that Wieringa was married to Margaretha van Tongeren, and that they had four children together, one of whom was also a portrait painter.
Wybrand Simonsz. de Geest I, also a portrait painter in Friesland, had the most influence on Wieringa's work. Wieringa's paintings are rare and most of his known work is kept in Dutch museums; these are primarily small in size and depict the sitter in full length.
