Member Profile of the Month Hanneke Koonstra Hanneke Koonstra came to Canada as a young girl from the Netherlands. Art has always been an important part of her life. As an elementary school teacher for more than 20 years, she instilled an appreciation for the arts in her students and encouraged them to develop their own talents. Recently, Hanneke has focussed on water- colours and fluid acrylics, showing her work mainly in Toronto and Durham Region. She rarely leaves home without her camera, whether travelling locally or abroad, to capture a moment of inspiration to be used in future paintings. Her floral paintings are frequently of flowers cut from her garden on her rural property on the Oak Ridges Moraine.
