Juried for prizes by Hines:

I began as a pencil artist producing meticulous figurative and surrealistic renderings on paper. In 1994 while living in Atlanta Georgia I began exploring oil painting resulting in the creation of my figurative and erotic surrealistic works on canvas. In 2001 my work shifted towards abstraction, inspired by my need for greater expression and my study of the New York school of abstract expressionism. In 2003 I moved to the San Francisco Bay area and began regularly exhibiting my abstract works. 2012 marked my return to representational painting with works that displayed my love of the figure and need for eclectic allegorical expression.  

Hines teaches Mastering Acrylic Painting every Tuesday at Riley Street Art Supplies in San Rafael. He also teaches drawing and painting at San Quentin Prison through the William James Association. Hines is the former President and Treasurer of The Artists Guild of San Francisco. He resides in Sausalito with his wife Dinene and son Emmett.
