“[Sarah, along with her son Davidee,] set up a private carving house or studio on the bank of the [Inukjuak] River and spends part of each day there, carving for sale to the co-operative and to fill mail orders received from southern Canada. She signs her pieces in syllabics. As an added pastime she sews distinctive [Inukjuak] dolls.” — from “The Inuit Artists of Inoucdjouac, P.Q.”
Sarah is also the second wife of the well-known carver Abraham Nastapoka.
