Artist Statement

"Pursuing art later in life has offered me the chance to fully embrace the passion I've had since childhood. Painting allows me to be "all in" whether it's capturing my love of the outdoors, sharing my enthusiasm and beauty of the world around me. I truly can express my individual take on the subject before me."     ~ Joel Heger

Many parts of the cliffs are steep. 16" x 20" June 2018.


Joel's oil paintings focus on seascapes, cityscapes, landscapes and portraits.
