Meet the Artist
Known by most just as "H", Helge Hinderaker is a long time resident of Providenciales ("Provo"), Turks & Caicos Islands in the West Indies. He was born, raised and educated in Norway (in the very distant past) and is an architect, designer and painter.
A life long sailor and lover of the sea, the maritime environment is "his world", and he is fortunate to look out at the subtropical Atlantic Ocean from his hill top home every morning. When he paints, however, he turns his back to this view and gets his inspiration "from within", as it goes.
Growing up when artists' paints were transparent or opaque water colors for paper, or traditional slow drying oil paints for canvas, the preferred medium today is acrylic based paints which are easily applied to canvas or wood panels, and dry fast!
