Alina Tungilik

Alina Tungilik


Kugaaruk, Nunavut Territory, Canada

(1970- )

Alina Tungilik has lived consistently in Pelly Bay and started carving at the age of 12. She was taught by her mother, Emily Illuitok’s older sister. The influence of her aunt, master artist Emily Pangnerk Illuitok (b.1943) is very evident in her carving style. Her works are in the classic Pelly Bay style working in mixed materials incorporating inlays of ivory, whalebone and caribou antler.

She has been carving sporadically for many years in varied subject matters from day to day life in the community to the traditional ways of living on the land. One of her favourite subjects to carve is dog teams.
