  Artist Statement

“I am committed to sharing the beauty of Coast Salish people and culture through my art. I had the privilege of learning stories from my elders, stories that have been with my people for thousands of years.
These stories have become an essential of my art, an intimate portrayal of who I am and where I come from. The creative challenge is in transforming old stories and traditional forms into contemporary expressions and mediums."

-Maynard Johnny Jr.
