Marcelle Hanselaar was born in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
She travelled extensively in Asia and Europe before finally settling down
in her studio in central London.
Although she studied briefly at The Royal Academy, The Hague [1962-’64],
as a painter she is entirely self-taught.
In 1992/93 and 1995/96 she was invited to teach painting at the S.W.Teaching University,
She also taught drawing at Sotheby’s Educational Institute, London from 1989-’99.
Around that time Hanselaar became interested in etching and learned printmaking
first at Morley College and later at Kensington & Chelsea College.
Marcelle Hanselaar’s early painting was abstract but from 1992
her work became completely figurative.
