Judge: Heiner Hertling, Howell, Michigan

Heiner Hertling embraces the visual arts in many different forms, may it be colorful oil paintings, sensitive watercolors or pastels, monumental bronze or wood sculptures and even jewelry. After a short stint as a commercial artist in New York he moved to Detroit where the auto industry employed some of the best illustrators and artists for their advertising.  After joining a studio and working for 20 years he ended up owning his own.  From intricate detailed realism to bold colorful impressionistic paintings nothing in the arts seemed to be off limits to Heiner. The discipline and craftsmanship he learned though his advertising career and his enthusiastic light-hearted nature also made him a nationally known teacher and mentor.  His television series “Your Brush with Nature”, a Plein Air painting show has given him a stage to share his knowledge internationally.
