A graduate of the Kunstschule Augsburg, Germany, Heigemeir has been an active member of the Woodstock Artists Association and Museum (WAAM) since 1976 and an active member of the Arts Society of Kingston (ASK) since 2008.

Heigemeir values creativity over consistency. While he still embraces realism, he is drawn toward

abstraction, with its color fields, freedom of

movement and the discovery of unexpected possibilities. He strives for a

visual conversation with the viewer at a level that a thousand words cannot reach. He does this not to tell a story, but to evoke feelings and emotions that cannot be otherwise communicated.
