Hanli Theron

Biography

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.

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.

“Flowers in bloom – a moment of joy that continues to blossom in my life” – Liz Soule

I take my inspiration from my personal connection and the emotion invoked in me using my camera to capture the moment which best express the experience.

I submerge myself in the moment and paint intensely from start to finish.
