Barman at the Chine Hotel in Boscombe, reveals Artistic Talent with first exhibition . . . .


Hans Heaton is a barman at the Chine Hotel in Boscombe, a gem of a hotel located in three acres of gardens with paths directly down to the beach. Recently his colleagues discovered that he is also fantastic artist, with many paintings to his name . He is so popular that he does not have any to show as they have all been sold almost immediately on completion which is quite an accolade!

He painted his first portrait in oil in 2008 and has been locally recognized by several professionals as a young man with a natural talent. Hans has his first exhibition on Friday May 20th at Slepe Farm Wareham so dont miss the opportunity to see this talented artist


Hans spent most of his youth in the countryside in Devon near Tavistock. At the early age of seven Hans was already making small paintings for his friends. Whilst in Plymouth Hans met Robert Lenkiewicz who recognised his talent even and gave Hans hints and advice on composition, highlights and subject material.




During his teenage years Hans had the opportunity to travel to the capital cities of Europe , to visit the art galleries and see the works of the Masters and has taken time to study history of art. He feels he was born to paint and was always interested in the great Italian and Dutch Masters.




When he moved to Bournemouth in 2007 the first thing he did was to walk in the footsteps of J M W Turner. One of the first major paintings Hans created was of the Needles just as Turner had done many years before.
