“Each painting is a glimpse of my life, that evolves on canvas. Every brush stroke placed to capture feeling. I strive to create an emotional connection, to inspire personal reflection and perhaps recollection … afternoon sunlight laid across a summer beach, heavy as gold, purpled at the edges with the promise of evening. The smell of the sea drying on the rocks. The sound of childrens laughter on the air… In a world that seems always about tomorrow, to remember to rejoice in today and yesterday.”

In 1961, Mark Heine, son of renowned artist Harry Heine RSMA, FCA, NWWS, was born in Edmonton Alberta. Their family moved to Vancouver Island in the early 1970’s.
