Jake Silva was introduced to art at a young age by his grandmother, an artist. "Drawing and painting have always interested me, so my grandmother would show me tips on how to paint, and she expressed interest in my art," said Jake. He has also taken several art classes in college to improve his skills. Jake uses his creative talents in brewing beer as well. Jake, Skagit Farm to Pint, and Skagit PUD unite water conservation, breweries, and art to raise funds for the non-profit Viva Farms.
