Timothy Ottochie


Cape Dorset, Nunavut Territory, Canada


Ottochie’s widow Oqsuralik, their daughter Shouyo Pootoogook, and their son Pingwartok are all Cape Dorset artists. Their adopted son Johnny is also a carver.

“Ottochie was perhaps the most talented and certainly the most consistent stone block cutter of all the many talented printmakers at Cape Dorset, contributing to every collection from 1961 until his death in 1983. For about 15 years or so he also did much of the editioning of the stones he cut, but tapered off in his last years, leaving the printing to others. In those later years, his chop appeared on many prints for which he probably did the cutting and proofing, but did not print the editions.” — from Canadian Inuit Print Artist/Printer Biographies 1990, compiled and edited by Sandra Barz
