Annie Pootoogook


Cape Dorset, Nunavut Territory, Canada


Annie Pootoogook was born in 1969 in Cape Dorset, Nunavut. She began drawing in 1997, and is a member of an extraordinary artistic family. Her father, Eegyvadluq, was a talented carver and one of the first stonecut printmakers in the Kinngait Studios at Cape Dorset. Her mother, Napachie, was a committed graphic artist and long-time contributor to the annual print collections from Cape Dorset. Her grandmother, Pitseolak Ashoona, was one of the first to experiment with the new medium of drawing during the transition years when Inuit were leaving their traditional camps and moving to permanent settlements in the Canadian Arctic. Pitseolak and Napachie went on to become two of the most prolific and highly respected Inuit graphic artists of their respective generations.
