Hennie Niemann Snr was born in 1941. He qualified as a teacher in 1964 and after 19 years of teaching decided to pursue a full time career as an artist. He shared a lengthy correspondence with Gregoire Boonzaier who showed an interest in Hennie and his art for quite a period, and it was ultimately Gregoire’s encouragement that led to him moving to Onrus, and becoming Gregoire’s neighbour and painting partner. Side by side they would paint trees, scenery and still life paintings together, and to this day Gregoire’s influence is noticeable in some of Hennie’s works.

He is well known for his more traditional works comprising Harvesters and Fynbos Pickers. His other genres are Abstracts, Ballet, Bistre, Clowns, Dreams, Faces Amongst Flowers, Fishermen, Fisherman’s Houses, Harvesters, Interiors, Landscapes, Linocuts, Monotypes, Musical instruments, Sculptures, Seascapes, Still Life and various other topics.
