George Jenkins

George Jenkins was born in Wilkie Saskatchewan and grew up on his father's farm near Lloydminster. Following three years in the army during W.W.II, he worked in the logging camps of Vancouver Island. It was there that he began to paint. He did not begin to paint full-time, however, until he made a visit back to Saskatchewan and was struck by the images of his childhood, thus inspired he embarked on a career in art.

His paintings of snowy fields dotted with abandoned buildings and decaying implements portray a time gone by without sentimentality. His landscapes have a haunting quality, as if looking back on a scene through faded memory.

The work of George Jenkins has developed an enthusiastic following and is displayed in numerous public, private and corporate collections, including Cargill Grain, Great-West Life Assurance Co., Canadian Motorways Ltd., Glenbow Alberta Institute, and the Mendel Art Gallery, Saskatchewan.
