HANNETJIE DE CLERCQ lives in a quiet village Riebeek-Kasteel in the Western Cape, South Africa. Her paintings are unique in the African Art sphere.

PURPER EN KANEEL, KOMYN EN SMARAG is the result of a long friendship between two remarkable women Hannetjie de Clercq & Riana Scheeper. Artist and author have enriched and broadened each other lives. Riana Scheepers composed this text in a lyrical narrative which reminds us of the mystical colours, the nostalgic yearning after mystery and the elusive secrets of women... the world of her friend, the artist.
PURPER EN KANEEL, KOMYN EN SMARAG is availible from LAPA Publisher and various book shops. Also availible from Hanna Christina Studio in Riebeek Kasteel. The book launch will be held on 28th October 2012 in Riebeek West. Email us on firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
