Graduating in 2018 with his BFA from the University of the Fraser Valley and currently pursuing his MFA at the University of Calgary, Jesse explores themes around spiritual and religious identity in the 21st century.
Working in a wide array of visual media including painting, sculpture, and performance Jesse approaches art making through ritualistic production. His works bring into service abstraction, surrealism, symbology, and theology to engage in visual storytelling and spiritual exploration. Through his creative synthesis Jesse aims to explore the connections between art making and religious devotion ultimately disseminating new knowledge concerning the use of artistic production as a method of theological enquiry.
