Welcome to Camino Estrella. Here you will find a unique collection of fine art inspired by the pilgrimage of the Camino de Santiago.
After a friend’s invitation to go hiking in northern Spain, traveling concept artist Marc Heffner found himself by coincidence on the Camino de Santiago in 2004. Impressed by what he saw and experienced, his pilgrimage gave birth to various sketches, paintings and other works of art-which continues today as his passion for the Camino has become woven into the fiber of his life.
Throughout the years he had been researching and observing the Camino de Santiago, both the old traditions as well as today’s way of pilgrimage. In his works, he connects with the symbols, traditions and nature of the pilgrimage, reflecting and capturing the spirit of the Camino de Santiago and distilling his impressions and experiences from the perspective of the peregrino (pilgrim). The ancient pilgrimage travel to Santiago de Compostela inspired countless works over the years and can be found in various collections all over the world.
Marc Heffner is a member of the International Association of Art (IAA).
