Noo has been carving for nine years, having started at the age of 11. Since that time he says, he’s “never missed a day!” He learned by watching his father, [Alashua Atsiaq].
Noo’s first carving was a small walking bear, which he sold for $4.00. Since the age of 12, he has been using small power tools. Today he is rapidly gaining a reputation for his white marble polar bears, which he started making some three years ago.
Noo has also worked for Nuna Parr by helping him file and sand his bears.
