My name is Jake, and I am a full-time mixed media artist living and creating in Edmonton, Alberta. My primary medium is copper, but also work with cement, stone, and other metal.

I get inspired by the flora and fauna in the natural and fantastical worlds. I love attempting to capture the feeling of connection I get walking barefoot through the mossy woodland, interacting with a majestic beast or when that whimsical critter lands on your finger, or the discovery of your favourite plant or fungus friend in unexpected spaces.

My goal in my creative process is to capture that sense of wonder from the natural world, and to encourage engagement with each piece and what it represents.
