Chester is part of the Frog clan. He worked in a variety of media including cedar, birch, alder, boxwood, and watercolor board. His art forms range from original paintings (contemporary and traditional), pastel, pencil, sponge and tattoo designs to original wood bowls, masks, panels, rattles and paddles. Chester has always been drawn to the art of his people, and he was trained as a dancer with K’san Performing Arts in his youth. He became a principle Gitksan dancer at the incredibly young age of 16. Chester was instructed by Water Harris, Ken Mowatt, Earl Muldon, Art Serritt and Vernon Stephens. He completed his studies at Gitanmaax, School of Northwest Coast Arts at K’san, in 1980 and has been seen in various exhibits, including “Topographies” at the Vancouver Art Gallery in 1997. In 2007, Chester received a British Columbia Creative Achievement Award for his innovative contributions to the Arts in B.C.
