When asked about what inspires his work, Jerry says, “Powwow dancers have been an ongoing theme in my work since I began painting. Seeing the dancers as a child had a lasting impression. The subject matter has been ideal for expressing a part of my culture as well as accommodating changes in my work. Many of the issues that accompany the dancers are about life in general or what affects me at the time.”
Jerry currently resides in Vancouver, BC where he continues to work as a full time artist."
