Welcome to our website!

Bill Heynen has left us a lasting legacy as a Master Wood Sculptor. Sadly, Bill passed away in 2021. Engaging the viewer in the dynamic flow of the sculpture, encouraging continual interaction between the audience and the carving was his ultimate goal. Following his BA and MA in Industrial Arts Education, he dedicated his life to creating works of art in the round and relief. His works are in collections throughout the United States and Worldwide. Public works include “Are We Not All Men And All Brothers” at California State University, Los Angeles.

This website, along with his published book, “Dynamic Creations: Wood Sculptures by Bill Heynen”, reflects a visual collection of some of his life’s work exploring this artistic medium. Please click on the LEGACY section to learn more about his life, view photos of Bill with family, friends, and patrons of his sculptures; and read tributes about Bill and his art creations.
