Born near Victoria, British Columbia in 1969 as a

member of Tsartlip nation, Chris was immersed in

Coast Salish art 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 and 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 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 flora,

fauna and mythologies associated with his culture

and his home on Vancouver Island.
