Hanli is a well-known artist who received a BA in Fine Arts at the University of Stellenbosch in 1984; in the following year she completed a course in jewellery design and ten years later she completed a business degree at the Graduate School of Business at her alma mater, the University of Stellenbosch. Since 2013, Hanli has been exhibiting annually, including several exhibitions in Cape Town and surrounds. Her work has travelled as far as Lamberts Bay and Port Elizabeth."Plein air is all about the light effect, the sense of immediacy, the adrenaline rush from being outside"
Currently, she is the owner and resident artist at the Pumpkin House Art Hub in Langebaan. Her inspiration comes from the ocean and swimming in open and cold-water conditions. These unchartered waters are the driving force behind Hanli’s art. She tunes into the rhythm of the sea and the movement within becomes an inexhaustible source of her genius.
