Bill Helin – WeLaaxumYout, Tsimshian Nation. Bill was born in Prince Rupert B.C. Canada in October of 1960. His Mother is Norwegian and his late Father Arthur was a Tsimshian Chief by the name of Hyemass.
Bill has had a very rewarding career as a designer, creative gold and platinum engraver, painter, woodcarver, book illustrator and writer.
His designing abilities in art and fashion follow his Tsimshian Indian traditions, telling stories and displaying native `Life Crests` that transform and come to life in every beautiful creation. In 1996 Bill took a break from the fashion and jewelry business to focus on his designing, writing and illustrating of children mythology stories. This new creative journey has brought him into the animation world and soon will bring his stories to life in 3-D computer generated movies.
