The North face of the House as completed by Craig and Zann Jacobrown

I have been a volunteer for the Kitsap County Parks Departments Stewardship Program for many years. I have helped build and maintain trails, assisted with land acquisition fundraising campaigns (sometimes creating and operating giant parade puppets) and now Zann, Jonah and I together with a large group of volunteers have created a mural for the North Kitsap Heritage Park entrance barn.

I have experience producing and teaching the traditional NW Coastal caligraphic art form so when the Suquamish Tribe was able to offer a seed grant to initiate this mural project I was ready to create a very local design. I felt the best use of my ‘stewardship’ time would be to contribute even more hours to promote the aesthetic heritage of this Kitsap County land as well as the frogs of the pond at the park entrance.

I relate deeply to the Frog. I run, I jump from one world to the next and I hope to evolve and transform as I travel from the realm of emotions to the realm of ideas and back. Also, ever since Ed Carriere has invited Jonah and I to join his family canoe, he has insured me that if his family had a crest symbol, he feels an affinity to the Frog Spirit.

Maybe this can help expose more of us to the beautiful North West Frog. Join us for the dedication ceremony in January. Check out the step by step ‘making of’ slide show!


  1. Needed to send you this very small word to finally thank you so much yet again relating to the striking thoughts you have shared on this site. This is so tremendously open-handed with you to provide unreservedly what most people would have sold for an electronic book to help with making some profit on their own, primarily since you might well have tried it in the event you wanted. Those things likewise worked to become a great way to recognize that someone else have the same passion similar to my very own to see very much more with regard to this problem. I know there are some more pleasurable situations up front for those who see your website.

  2. CBD, Thanks for your input. I’m not quite sure what problem you are referring to that I might have encountered. I’m happy to share.
