Heiné de Waal


Welcome to my website!

Thank you for visiting my website.

My intention is to share my art with the hope that it would bring you much joy.

If you need any additional information, please contact me. 

I am a healer and an artist. It took me a while to discover this. In 1986 I started my career in the medical and health profession as a Medical Bio-Technologist, specialising in Haematology.

After acquiring an extremely painful and “incurable” joint disease called Ankylosing Spondylitis, I started exploring the field of alternative healing and complimentary medicine. This was hugely beneficial and a vital part of my healing process.

Reiki was my first study in complimentary medicine. I also studied several different healing modalities such as Aromatherapy, Colour Therapy, Therapeutic Body Massage, Reflexology, Shiatsu and Numerology. 

I also qualified as a counsellor and furthered my studies in Human Behaviour and Social Psychology. 

Although I have been trained in several healing modalities and practiced it for more than a decade, I have decided to focus on art. 

         March 2008 - My first attempt on canvas.

At the age of 46 (2008), I unexpectedly awakened to expressing my creativity within and hence I started my journey with art. I discovered my latent talent as a visual artist while I was “playing” on a tiny canvas with some acrylic paint (see right) which my partner presented as a gift. I was impressed with my first attempt and decide to get some coaching. 

While embracing this wonderful new talent, I moved on to larger paintings and have not stopped since. Please click on this link to view my art.

One other “medium” I use to express my creativity is the Japanese art of Bonsai. I always had green fingers, even did one year Botany at University but when I found the art of Bonsai it was an immediately connection. Bonsai to me is more an art than horticulture.

Last, but not the least, I love to write. Through my expression of art and writing,  I am learning more about myself, people and this beautiful planet.
