Peter Heinjus

Peter began his trade as a welder. Later changing direction he worked as a computer graphic artist developing animations for video production and later moved to 3D computer graphics.

He was encouraged to give oil painting a try at Henley & Grange Art Society. A painting trip with the group to Arkaroola created the start of a wonderful journey seeing the world through the eyes of an artist. Over the years his paintings in acrylics and oils have consisted of landscapes, seascapes, still life, wildlife, street scenes, historical buildings and ‘typical’ Australian subjects for local and overseas travellers.

Peter has been involved with many art groups, community projects and has always been helpful in passing on his knowledge to others. Peter enjoys the challenge that each new subject presents, and strives to the best of his ability to put to canvas the feeling and emotion he has for that subject.
