Historical Context:
Educated from a young age in fine arts, Minnhaar earned a degree in architecture, working first in Argentina and then in the metropolitan Detroit area before moving to Grand Rapids a quarter century ago. It was after establishing her own business in West Michigan that Minnhaar returned to art, citing her professional training as a great influence on her work. She has progressively set aside her career as a designer of buildings to refocus on painting, spending time traveling around the world to broaden her artistic skills.
