(1946-2003)

Jimmy Inaruli Arnamissak was born on March 31, 1946 at Cape Smith; his alternative name “Jimmy Smith” is derived from his place of birth, where he lived until circa 1956. After his father Silassie was killed while hunting seal, his mother Louisa became the sole source of support for the family. In 1957, to supplement her pension, Jimmy began to carve. Through hard work and long hours he developed his talent and is now recognized as one of Arctic Quebec’s leading sculptors.
