Mark Heine


Canadian artist and author Mark Heine has come to realize he's a story teller. Writing has long been a key component in his creative process. A written narrative accompanies each of his paintings. The symbiotic relationship of these two distinct disciplines has led to a unique approach to both. His paintings, all captured moments in a larger story. Bringing one of those stories to life – to larger than life – marrying fiction to painting, is the focus of his most recent works ... the Sirens series.

    In a career spanning 35 years in the arts, his work for clients such as Disney, Sony, Microsoft and Starbucks, have led to more than forty national and international awards. A succession of well received solo and group shows across North America and Europe, has recently brought his work to galleries in New York, Los Angeles and Denver where he's been showing with some of the most recognized artists in America.

   Mark Heine, his wife Lisa Leighton live in beautiful Victoria, BC Canada, on Vancouver Island. Visit
