Hanneke, one of our founding local CP chapter members, is a dedicated artist and retired art teacher. She received her BFA degree from the University of Denver and her Master’s degree from Kansas State University. During her past 38 years in education, she has served as a guidance counselor, assistant principal, an elementary school principal and a High school Art Teacher.
Her art background includes photography, pen and ink, oil and acrylic painting, printmaking, scratchboard and her great love - graphite pencil and colored pencil drawing. Official acknowledgement of her artistic talent began in 1982. She is recognized for her detailed artwork that captures the liveliness and spirit of nature and animal subjects.
In 1995 Hanneke met Art Lamay in a workshop in Maine. This meeting greatly inspired her to photograph and draw from her own experiences and travels.
During the past year she has won several 1st place awards for her colored pencil, mixed media and photography. These can be seen on the web site. She is available for private and group lessons, as well.
