The West End Gallery is excited to announce the inlcusion of James Wiens to our family of Artists!
Born and raised in British Columbia, James was interested in art from a very early age. His passion for art drove him through school and inspired him to further develop his talent by enrolling in Emily Carr College of Art Design. Jame's talent was recognized quickly after graduation by a gallery in Vancouver, BC, where he began his thirty-plus-year career in professional Canadian fine art.
James has spent years contemplating the meaning of beauty. The beauty within people and in the objects they create. The beauty in the natural world and the animals that inhabit it. It encourages him to paint and helps his viewers to cherish the environment he chooses to paint. He wants you to appreciate and indulge in them and, after viewing them, leave you with a feeling of hope.

His immersive style captures more than the essence of each scene; it brings to life the unique story embedded in every brushstroke.
Cairns' new series is a masterful continuation of her exploration into the heart of Canada's coastal landscapes. Pieces such as "Shoreline XI," "Refuge Cove I," "Intertidal II," and "Mansons Lagoon XV" represent a deep dive into the artist's intimate relationship with the sea and shore. Cairns captures the essence of each location's unique story through her distinct, immersive style.
