Hanneke Parmentier


Hanneke started painting lessons at the ‘Visual Expression Academy’ in Amersfoort.
Besides oil paintings Hanneke autonomously started designing and producing unique clothing.
Her special talent was discovered by Gérard Grassère, a famous Dutch painter who started his career in Antwerp (Belgium).
His lessons were a valuable contribution to Hanneke’s work.

Following this Hanneke studied at the ‘Charles Montagne Fashion Academy' in Amsterdam. Designing clothes and fabrics became her speciality.

After a long period of experiments she took a remarkable step by producing an artwork reflecting all the different stages in a woman's life.
Actually from birth to the final transition. The fabrics Hanneke used for these unique objects consist of all kinds of material: modern but also material that is well over a hundred years old.
