Inuit

Cape Dorset, Nunavut Territory, Canada

(1946- )

Oopik Pitseolak was born in Lake Harbour and moved to Cape Dorset in 1960 where her father, Tommy Manning worked for the Hudson Bay Company. Oopik began carving soon after settling in Cape Dorset. As a young girl she began working with her father-in-law, Peter Pitseolak, helping him polish the finished carvings. Her grandmother, Simatuq, taught her how to do beadwork. Oopik often combines these two talents by adding beadwork to her sculpture.
