Grid Row Exhibit
Artwork by: Birgit Hein Artwork by Birgit Hein will be featured during August. Hein tells us about herself:
Raised in the south, born in Germany, art and wildlife are my passion. The name Hokti was given to me by Creek Indians. I have spent extensive time with various Native American cultures and am very interested in their culture.
This interest led me to the style of art that I love to paint, which is wildlife on leather, wood or canvas. My medium is casein, specializing in birds, wolves, big cats, and some landscape. My interests include the environment and conservation.
This year, I am a six year cancer survivor! This has made me more committed to the planet, my fellow man and my art. I am grateful for all three! Some profit of my art work is going to the Louisiana Animal Hospital for the Gulf Coast and Bring Back the Cranes Organization. This exhibit is sponsored by the Arts Council of Williamson County.
