Jessie Recalma is a Coast Salish artist and a member of Qualicum First nation with deep roots in Musqueam First Nation. Jessie grew up watching his grandfather create Indigenous works of art. His grandfather shared this knowledge and passed on the tools which sparked Jessie's passion for carving. A carving knife that his grandfather gifted to him would be the first of many carving tools that are now used to create a unique blend of contemporary and traditional Coast Salish style. While carving is one of Jessie’s favourite mediums to work with, he also devotes his time to painting, digital design, and Indigenous languages. Jessie currently works out of his home studio.
