Joe Jack's traditional artwork provides a small glimpse into the historical traditions, culture, and belief systems of the Coast Salish people, and the enduring rich legacy of his Coast Salish Indian Ancestors.
For the last 20 years Joe Jack has worked extensively in creating works of traditional Salish art in beautiful gold jewellery; wedding rings, bracelets, earrings, and pendants.
He enjoys spending time creating original and limited edition prints, cedar sculpture, and most recently designing and building traditional Salish racing canoes.
