Kelly Robinson

Nuxalk, Nuu-chah-nulth

(1981- )

Kelly Robinson was born on May 18, 1981 in Nanaimo, British Columbia. His roots and family origin are in Bella Coola, BC with descendants from both the Nuxalk and Nuu-chah-nulth nations. He was exposed to First Nations artwork from an early age and was always interesting in learning and refining the art — specifically the unique design forms of the Nuxalk.
