Featured Artist: Kenojuak Ashevak
Kenojuak Ashevak is considered one of the greatest Inuit artists; her prints and drawings helped introduce Inuit art to much of the world. Kenojuak (pronounced ken-OH-jew-ack), spent her early years living nomadically in Canada’s Arctic regions; she developed her art from the embroidery that she learned as a child. As an adult, she eventually settled in Cape Dorset on Baffin Island so that her children could go to school. There she became part of a group of artists who successfully developed and brought awareness to the unique arts and crafts of the region. Kenojuak received many special honors over the years and traveled all over the world as an ambassador for Inuit art.
