About the Artist:
Kelly Robinson was born in 1981 in Nanaimo, British Columbia. His family descends from both the Nuxalk and Nuu-chah-nulth nations. Kelly’s uncle, Alvin Mack, is a master carver who trained Kelly in the craft.
Kelly went on to make his life’s work creating art reflective of the First Nations through his skill of carving. He studied at the Northwest Coast jewelry program at the Native Education College in Vancouver, British Columbia. After graduation, he completed apprenticeships under Jim McGuire and Gordon Dick.
Kelly’s work is featured in children’s books, masks, paintings, and much more.
Today he shares his craft and continues to connect with his heritage through art and study. We feature his artwork with products such as clothing, wallets, and purses.
