Born and raised in Great Falls, Montana, he was directly exposed to the painting and sculpture of C M Russell and mentored by sculptors Gutzon Borglom, Lorado Taft, and Frederick Hibbard. By 1928, Heikka was considered a major sculptor with successful exhibitions in Los Angeles and at the 1932 World's Fair in Chicago.
