The term geisha translates to "entertainer". Geishas are artists and in the Japanese culture they entertain male customers with music, dance, and conversation. Some prostitutes refer to themselves as "geisha", but that is not correct. A geisha's sex and love life is usually distinct from her professional life.
Heine, a self-taught artist, discovered his latent talent at the age of 46 (2008) while he was "playing" with a minute canvas and some student-acrylic paints. Embracing this wonderful new gift, he promptly moved on to larger and more complexed work. Heine honed his technique and skills when he joined an amateur-artists group in Cape Town, tutored by a professional art teacher. This quickly culminated in the sale of his first painting at his very first group art-exhibition. Since then his work has been selling to overseas and local art collectors.
