Adamie is a son of the noted artists Kenojuak Ashevak and Johnniebo Ashevak. He began carving when he was ten, learning from his parents, but did not carve regularly until recently. Early on, he loved to carve bears, but he has also made figurative works. He credits Nuna Parr for his ideas and support towards his wildlife subjects, and artist Silas Kayakjuak for advice on how to treat the human figure. He has been exhibiting since 1987 and was part of the “New Visions” show in 1996.
