Introduction Born in San Jose Costa Rica.Attended the fine arts school at the University of Costa Rica where her studies lead her in to investigating the integration of different materials and the experimentation with wood, metal and ceramics. From her experience in ceramics and the technique of pine needle basketry that she acquired in Argentina, came the idea of integrating and combing the two, to form unique one of a kind pieces. Hannie has participated in over ten collective art shows and has been accepted into a couple of national Biennales. In 2000 she gets her degree in plastic arts with emphasis in sculpture. Since then her work can be seen in galleries and art fairs across Costa Rica. Together with her husband Leo Gotlibowski, who is also an artist , desingner and jewler, they form the studio Lugar del espiral, where they reunite both there work and do projects together such as the series of human indigenous sculptures for the pre-Columbian gold museum. Apart from there work in sculpture, ceramics and pine needle basketry, they have also done murals in copper and bronze and in mosaic, that can be seen in different locations around San Jose.
