Unexpectedly at the age of 46 Hein awakened to expressing his creativity within!
Hein discovered his latent talent as a visual artist while he was playing on a tiny canvas and some acrylic paint.
Embracing this wonderful new talent, Hein promptly finished that first painting, moved on to larger paintings and has not stopped since.
Heins art technique improved notably when he joined an amateur-artists group, tutored by a professional art teacher. While displaying huge courage by exploring his newfound talent, he is experimenting with various styles, subjects and mediums.
While using acrylic-paint exclusively, many experienced artists marvel at Heins ability to use paint in a way that it resembles oil-paint.
This culminated in Hein already selling paintings at his very first group art exhibition. Heins paintings are in great demand and some of his paintings and commissioned artwork are proudly displayed by owners across South Africa and even as far as in Europe and Canada.
One additional medium he uses to express his creativity, is with the Japanese art of Bonsai. By sculpting these miniature and at times very old trees, he focuses more on the art of form, perspective and balance; rather than concentrating on the horticultural aspect of the trees.
Heins ever-growing (pun intended) collection of more than 30 bonsai attests to his passion for beauty. He is a noted speaker on radio-shows and shares his passion and knowledge with people across the country.
Hein is based in Tamboerskloof, Cape Town where he lives with his partner and their two cats.
