If there is one thing I have had no shortage of it would be studio space. Every one has it’s own feel and atmosphere, sometimes wide open, sometimes closed in. I spent nearly 3 months of my life in an old run down, yet still operational warehouse/industrial space in the middle of the prairie, during a rather frigid Canadian winter painting a cosmic space bus. I spent 3 months on Maui, and eventually made a bunch of things there that were completely infused with the energy and rhythms of that place. One of the advantages of being anonymous, so to speak, is I can go to cool places and do my thing and hardly anyone notices until that is I get discovered and than I simply move on. I have spent most of my life living under the radar and in some ways the advantages if that outweigh the pressure of conforming to a certain style or technique, or pleasing the gallery I am with, or keeping the collectors happy, that is superfluous to making art. Every space/environment I make art in opens my mind to so many interesting and beautiful possibilities, and this can be a blessing when the fear is kept at bay. Werner Fassbinder made a film about, ‘Fear eats the Soul’, does it not?

Hi my name is hälts, I am a Canadian artist, geographer, film worker and mostly a human being. I did not grow up thinking I wanted to be an artist, things just kind of fell into place. Art is a special gift humans have developed since inception. Mother Earth is the greatest artist, and who keeps me humble on my path. I mostly paint, and use acrylic with an assortment of brushes and touches, and sometimes watercolour. I am also well rounded with airbrush skills, spray paint, digital art and production, filmmaking, photography and drawing. I make fine art work, small paintings, big paintings, murals, wearable art, functioning art, and art for healing. I go wherever calls. I inspire while also being inspired by this planet, and my fellow beings. Life is a gift, and that's how I treat it. If that's not enough for you, then perhaps someone else can fill your expectation. I have no one to impress, I don't do this to be cool, and I care about this planet as much as Greta Thunberg, thank you very much, and all the life it sustains. I am not pro this person or that person, politically agnostic, I am spiritual, I am happy, I am sad, I am love, I am fear, I am joy, I am sorrow, I am all that humans are. I don't care about celebrities endorsements, and reminder there are many folk out there doing their part for Mother Earth, in their own way long before the current movement, upheaval does not create forever change, it goes in cycles, it always has and it always will, just sit in front the ocean and see it for yourselves. Most of all I just am. Thank you kindly, hälts
