Welcoming New Artist James Weins!

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.

Visit James' Artist Page to view his full selection of works available at the gallery!

Breath of Life began with a drawing, a simple yet powerful blueprint for what would become a life-sized celebration of nature. In the concept sketches, we see the genesis of her vision—clusters of peonies rendered in loose, confident strokes. These initial marks are the seeds from which the full bloom of the diptych would grow.
