George began carving in 1947. As self-taught carver, he prefers to work with stone, and his favourite subjects to carve are polar bears and seals.
George’s wife Nellie is a carver and a crafts artist. A number of their children are also artists: their daughter Jeannie Padluq, and their sons Sammy, Charlie, Kolola, Simata, Donny and Mark Iola Pitsiulak.
