The foundation of hälts art repertoire is drawing, it is something he has practiced for many years, with only a few hiatuses in his earlier years. Drawing transforms an idea into the blueprint, the base for which hälts builds his compositions. This is  a great way for artists to develop their style, and tap into the creative process anywhere, anytime. While travelling hälts also draws, this is a way to connect to the place and also it seems to provide an outlet for the stress that comes with travelling alone to new places. In some cases these drawings become the base for a mural design and paintings, and for hälts they are interwoven.

Various drawings from over the last little while, each one little victories, although photography is something hälts loves, there is something to be said for sitting in an environment and drawing, it opens you right up to a world that is unknown, these are some of those worlds….

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
