"Art is my language and an expression of who I am and where I come from. Sharing my culture helps to honor and preserve it." Ben Houstie is a Heiltsuk Nation artist born in 1960 in Bella Bella, British Columbia. Ben began expressing his artistic abilities at a young age. He began painting on paper and canvas, then progressed to printmaking, carving cedar, and silver and gold jewelry-making. Houstie has worked with different artists, including Cheryl Hall, Robert Hall, David Gladstone, and Beau Dick. In 1988, he worked under Bill Reid, painting several drums of Bill’s designs and 20 paddles for the Canadian Museum of Civilization in Ottawa. In 2000, Ben painted several reconstructed artworks for the Museum of Anthropology’s “The Transforming Image” exhibition at the University of British Columbia.
