Meelia Kelly is the younger sister of the late Sheojuk Etidlooie. Like her sister, Meelia is a latecomer to the graphic arts, and her work reveals a similar mature confidence and talent. Encouraged by her sister to draw, Meelia began bringing her drawings to the studios five years ago and has since worked in both etching and lithography during workshops held in Cape Dorset. Her work has been represented in the annual collections since 2001.
This year, Meelia is represented by four images, displaying her sense of humour, originality and growing confidence as a graphic artist. Meelia like her late sister, Sheojuk is engaged with form and colour, particularly evident in this year’s Precious Owl. Her other images included in the 2005 collection have great graphic appeal for their characteristic bold and exaggerated shapes.
