About the Artist, Art Heim
A passion for the outdoors, coupled with a limitless curiosity for knowing what's around the next bend have led Art Heim to a life of exploring the natural and human wonders of our world. Art's travels have included much of North America, Asia, Southern Africa, Europe, and Central America. A highlight of this experience has been trekking the high Himalaya of Nepal, hiking the ancient trade route between Tibet and India at the foot of Mount Everest.
After retiring from Penn State University, Art served in the US Peace Corps for two years, working in Botswana. Since returning from Africa, Art continues to pursue his passion for photography and travel in the US and around the world. HeimWorks images have evolved from a personal passion for capturing the beauty of nature, and compassion for the people of the places Art Heim visits. Photos are taken around the world in many countries and in the United States.

Many of Art's best works are from walks alone in the woods on quiet mist- laden mornings, while others are the result of hours of searching and waiting for just the right moment.
