Isa Smiler

Inuit

Inukjuak, Quebec, Canada

(1921-1986)


“Born in [Inukjuak], Isa [was] always … a hunter, trapper and a fisherman who [lived] off the land. He began carving in 1948, after Jim Houston … had been on a visit to the settlement. His favourite subjects [were] the Arctic animals of his environment, especially otters. …[Isa signed] his work with his disc number, syllabics or Isa. S.”*

Isa’s autobiography was featured in the Summer-Fall, 1977 issue of “Inuktitut”. His wife Lucy was an artist, and his son Daniel is a carver living in Inukjuak.

*from “The Inuit Artists of Inoucdjouac, P.Q.”, 1978
