Bert Holländer was born in the Flemish region of Belgium. She qualified as a teacher at the Ecole Normale pour Instituteurs de Bruxelles and in Fine Arts at the Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts d’Anvers, where she specialised in Painting, Drawing and Ceramics.
Bert then worked as an artist and teacher in Belgium, before moving to Sâo Paulo, Brazil in the early Sixties. There she continued to develop her art, teach and exhibit, working mainly in ceramics. In 1964 she moved to the Côte d’Azur in France, where she still lives, combining work in her studio in Le Cannet with teaching at the Beaux Arts in Cannes.
