Kelly Robinson

Kelvin (Kelly) Robinson was born on May 18, 1981 in Nanaimo, British Columbia. He grew up in Bella Coola, BC. Descending from Nuxalk and Nuu-chah-nulth nations, Kelly was exposed to First Nations artwork. From an early age, he showed interest in learning and refining the art, specifically the unique from of the Nuxalkmc.

Under the guidance of his uncle, noted Master Carver, Alvin Mack, and his high school art teacher Charlene Kurtz, Kelly has developed his own techniques in the creation of two and three dimentional art forms. He has also had the pleasure of working under artists Dan Wallace, James McGuire and Cory Bulpitt. 

 Due to Kelly's desire from artistic development and perfection, he enrolled at the Native Education Centre in Vancouver, where he is currently taking a course in First Nations jewelry carving. Immediately following the completion of this course, Kelly will be attending the Freda Diesing School of Norther West Coast, where he will have the opportunity to work with renowned artist Dempsey Bob.
