High Artist Spotlight: Stef

Steffen Heinrich has a boundless love for the arts. He believes most things can be seen with an artist’s eye. A group of people, a babbling brook, a kaleidoscope of imagery sets the imagination on fire.His early career was commercially oriented, with illustration, package design and product identification to mention a few applications. He says his focus on customer satisfaction was the driving force to completing an objective well.Now being retired he spends a lot of time “playing” on canvass and digitally for his own satisfaction…
