David Hettinger, from Illinois (2)



Hettinger was born in Aurora, Illinois in 1946. He began drawing at the age of eight and painting oil at the age of thirteen. The artist has won both regional and national awards from the Oil Painters of America. Hettinger’s interiors are impressionistic but often the details become the central element of the composition. “I’m interested in delineating the little objects,” he says, “the stacks of books, whatever makes a home.”
