“Ohoveluk was born in 1935 at Rymer Point on the west coast of Victoria Island. She is the granddaughter of Charlie Keengenberg, a Danish trader and explorer who settled in the Arctic to live the life of the Inuit. A very talented artist, Ohoveluk draws mostly late in the evenings or during the night when her children are asleep. She has the gift of reviving with extraordinary reality scenes of hunting and enjoys drawing difficult compositions.”
