About the Artist

Nick Jennings lives on Bowen Island, BC, Canada, where he is a member of the Catching Stars Gallery. As well as having worked with oils, gouache and acrylics, he has painted watercolour scenes in Portugal, Russia, Slovenia, New Zealand, Ireland, England, Mexico, and numerous locations around BC.

He moved to Canada from the UK in 2005 to be closer to his father, who recently retired from SFU after 50 years in the Philosophy department. He particularly enjoys exploring the textures and values created by inclement weather, as well as the richness of sunsets reflected in water, making Bowen Island the ideal place to be an artist!

By profession, he is a lecturer at Capilano University, and he has a Masters degree in Applied Linguistics from the University of Birmingham. Nick had private lessons at age nine with a celebrated local artist, later studying art, literature, philosophy and education.

Nick's large acrylic mandala paintings were an experiment in creating an objective aesthetic that is pre-determined by symmetry and an interplay of colours. Prints of these nine square foot mandalas on canvas are available on the shopping page of this site.
