Jared is from the Tzeachten (Chee-ack-ten) First Nation located in Chilliwack BC
Since the late 80s Jared has been inspired by music, skateboarding, and his surroundings. “From nature to architecture, there is art in everything.”
He was introduced to digital art in the early 2000s and it quickly became his main source of artistic expression. This lead to Jared working with the Stó:lo Shxwelí Halq’eméylem Language Program illustrating stories and designing graphics to aid in language learning.
Utilizing modern inspirations combined with traditional Coast Salish Art, Jared is developing a unique style of Contemporary First Nation Art.
