ABOUT THE ARTIST
Art has always been an important part of Hanneke Koonstra’s life. As an elementary school teacher Hanneke instilled an appreciation for the arts in her students and encouraged them to express their talents.
Hanneke studied art at the University of Toronto as part of her teaching training. She has also attended many workshops to further develop her painting skills.
Watercolours are her main media but Hanneke also paints in oil, acrylic, and most recently has enjoyed experimenting with alcohol inks.
Hanneke's bright, colourful paintings are inspired by her rural Uxbridge property, her camping and European trips.
Her Dutch heritage comes out in many of her paintings.
She is constantly growing as an artist and her work has been in juried shows, local galleries, and are part of private collections in Canada, the U.S.A., and Europe.
For 2022 Hanneke will be welcoming guests to view not only her own work, but that of woodturner Kade Bolger, glass and jewellery creator Berna Kilic, and ceramic artist Catharina Goldnau, at her indoor and outdoor studio/gallery.
If you would like to purchase a piece of work, or request a commission piece, contact Hanneke directly through her website, by email, or by giving her a call.
