Arto Heino, Mount Pritchard Member Since March 2010 Artist Statement I have been an Artist for about 35 years, I have tried my hand at most styles and forms of art. I am a current Member of our local Fine Art Society. I will outline a brief arts resume - I started in underground science fiction and comic fanzines in 1968-1974, this made me realise that I am also a general freelance artist which covers 1974-2010. I attended Art College 1981-1982, and was awarded first in State, this gave me impetus to do portrait/animal/commisions from 1986-1995. Having done a small business course I began art business 1996-2000 where I authored and published three books, I am currently writing a new book about alternative historical events. I was also Computer programmer 1983-1988, I have a current program for sale on the net and I am also a Musician, a guitar player with current and old music on the internet.
