Chris is a young Coast Salish artist who is gaining international acclaim for his limited edition gicleé prints, cedar panels and glass sculptures. Born near Brentwood Bay, B.C. in 1969 as a member of Tsartlip Nation, Chris was immersed in Coast Salish culture as a child. Before the age of thirty, Chris had completed one year of intensive training at ‘Ksan, the Gitanmaax School of Northwest Coast Art, and had completed a two-year apprenticeship under celebrated Tsimshian artist, Roy Henry Vickers. In 2007, Chris completed a major commission for the Sidney Pier Hotel & Spa. This project resulted in the creation of three large-scale etched glass panels for the lobby of the Hotel, as well as smaller panels to be placed in each of the hotel’s 55 rooms. Chris has also gained exposure through the hit television series ‘Grey’s Anatomy’, in which a number of his prints have been featured. Chris’ pieces often reflect the flora, fauna and mythologies associated with his culture and his home on Vancouver Island.
