dutch mastery with a modern twist
studio h is the creation of hanneke steenmetz. this dutch transplant has called northern california her home for over 20 years now. an extensive background in graphic design and illustration has provided her with a solid knowledge of typography, calligraphy and design in general. this multi faceted, forever curious artist, is always looking to master new skills and is equally accomplished in disciplines as varied as portrait painting, sewing, screen printing and sign-painting. during extensive travels to the mediterranean and the middle east she fell in love with tiles. it was only a matter of time until she started to create her own in her sausalito studio. she specializes in hand painted as well as screen printed designs.
