22 May Ben Jennings
Nickel Plate Arts welcomed local artist Ben Jennings to our Atlanta Studio Space in the fall of 2017. Jennings is a painter and designer with an interesting career history – he first graduated from Ball State University in 1998 with a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture degree. While he maintains a landscape architect license in the state of Indiana, Jennings has recently obtained a registered nursing license and works for IU Health as an RN. Besides his varied professional pursuits, Jennings is a passionate artist who enjoys creating contemporary works of modern, abstract art in both hand-painted and digitally constructed forms. Faith, nature, introspection, and design are central themes of his current pieces.
Jennings lives with his wife Erin in Noblesville, and while his “day job” keeps him quite busy, he can often be found volunteering at his church or here at Nickel Plate Arts. For more information about Jennings or to see some of his artwork, visit his website at http://www.benjenningsdesign.com.
