About A. Hehnlin's Art

Andy Hehnlin creates all of his art using egg-tempera. Popular in Europe, this realistic method was developed during the renaissance and was used by Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, and many others. Today there are less than 200 professional egg-tempera artists in the world; most of those are in Europe. Egg-tempera uses egg yolk mixed with distilled water and pigments to create a unique surface with beautiful optical properties.

Andy takes time from his busy summers of gold mining to observe the wondrous beauty of Alaska, storing those scenes in his memory and a photograph. During the long winter months, when the ground is too frozen to mine, Andy takes out those photographs and relives the experiences into paintings.
