Inuit

Arviat, Nunavut Territory, Canada

(1920-1993)

Mary started carving in 1957 and has since only made female figures out of stone and antler. She learned to sew in 1958 and continues to make mitts, vests, duffle sox, dolls, and wall hangings. Mary’s husband was the late, well known Arviat sculptor Andy Miki.
