My name is Heinz Hoes. Born 1950, in Friesland, Germany. From 1974 - 1979, I attended the Academy of Art (Hochschule der Kuenste) in Berlin for contemporary painting. Through my interest in Tibetan Buddhism I came to live at the Tibetan Monastery and Tibetan Centre of Kagyu Samye Ling in Eskdalemuir in the Borders Region of Scotland, UK, in 1980. There I learnt the art of Thangka painting in the Karma Gadri style from the renowned Master Artist, Sherab Palden Beru. I studied under him and assisted him for 20 years with his many very intricate fine Tibetan Thangka paintings, larger formats and smaller sizes with miniature features. 1989, I have been given permission to do my own Tibetan artwork and completed various paintings as commissions over the years on my own as well. I completed my commitment at Samye Ling in 2001 and settled in Findhorn, North of Scotland continuing my artwork.
