Roger Gray - Tsimshian artist - Native name: Lee'x

Roger Gray, a Northwest coast native, was born in Prince Rupert, B.C. and raised in Port Simpson, B.C. in 1969. He is of the Tsimshian Ginadoiks Tribe, belonging to the Lax Kw'alaams native band.

These admiring qualities give him that special artist's eye....
