Meet Hannie Goldgewicht
I have been an artist since before I can remember; always my art has defined me. Over the past 15 years I have experimented with many different mediums from metal to clay, paper to stone. My childhood in Costa Rica had a tremendous influence and it comes through with my love of natural materials and organic design. Traveling through Europe, the Middle East, Central and South America observing those different cultures gave me a feel for the diversity of art and a sense of freedom to create unique techniques. It was on a trip to Argentina that I first came across pine needle basketry and began learning the technique from master fiber artist Delfa Deriu.
I am currently living in Los Angeles, where I continue to learn and experiment, always striving to give character and beauty to each piece making them an expression of my love of form and design, with time mastered workmanship.
Note: Hannie has won nearly a dozen juried art festival awards across California including 3 Best In Show! She has been featured in the prestigious American Craft Council Magazine, and has had her art selected for the Pasadena Showcase House on several occasions. Her work has been accepted to various international Biennales and was an invited artist to the Cheongju International Craft Biennale in Korea. We are thrilled to welcome her to Los Altos Rotary Art in the Park 2016.
