Heber Reece

Tsimshian Nation
 
Heber takes the Killerwhale, the great hunter of the ocean, as his predominant family crest symbol. He is a self-taught carver who has been making Pacific Northwest Coast First Nation’s art since the late 1970s.

Heber prefers to use such medium as alder and cedar wood. He is a versatile artist who makes such pieces as rattles, masks, grease bowls and paddles in the traditional style of his nation. During his carving career, Heber studied at a very prominent First Nation’s art school in Hazelton, B.C. known as K’san for one year in order to improve his skills as an artist.

In 1995 Heber aided in carving a 30-foot totem pole for the Common Wealth Games. Presently he resides in Terrace, B.C. and is embarking on carving a totem pole for an establishment in Bellingham, WA.

Heber comes from a long line of master carvers and is considered to be in the same level himself. He is one of many artists who are preserving his cultural background through his artwork for future generations.
