Alex was born in Nanaimo, British Columbia, and is the son of Native Tsimshian artist Bill Helin. He has been creatively assisting his father in the art world since he was six years old. His main interests were wood carving and at the age of eight he was the youngest carver to work on the World’s tallest totem pole for the Commonwealth Games in Victoria, B.C. That same year Alex helped his dad carve the 40 foot long Raven song Canoe and helped paddle it to the Victoria Commonwealth Games with the Tribal Journeys Canoe Regatta.
I take ultimate care and pride in every piece I create, knowing I’m passing along the beauty of my native culture to every client.
