“Janet Kigusiuq is best known for her graphics but has also gained significant recognition in the medium of fabric art. She was born in the Back River area of the Keewatin region of the Northwest Territories and is the eldest daughter of Jessie Oonark. Oonark was one of Baker Lake’s—and Canada’s—most distinguished artists. Kigusiuq was encouraged by her mother to draw as a means of making money to supplement her family’s meager income.
