Terry Nimmon

3637 Glen Oaks Drive

 Terry Nimmon was born in Edmonton, Alberta and had an early interest in art.  At the age of 9 he attended the Edmonton Art School and art has always remained his passion.
Although art took a bit of a background for him during his 30-year career as a Surgeon, his attention returned to art after he retired in 2004.  He has studied with local and international artists, but is primarily self-taught. Terry has been an active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists since September, 2004.  For several years Terry worked in watercolours, then shifted his focus to pastels, and he is now also working with oils.  He particularly enjoys both the beauty of being outdoors with nature, and the challenges of the ever changing light in plein aire painting.  His paintings involve scenes around Gabriola Island, Nanaimo and the beautiful Southern Arizona desert.
