Joy Kiluvigyuak Hallauk

Inuit

Arviat, Nunavut Territory, Canada

(1940-2000)

Joy began carving in the mid-60s, and she says Arviat carver John Attok was her teacher. She prefers stone to antler and her favourite subject matter is people, often a mother and child group. Also an avid seamstress, she likes the creative freedom of making wall-hangings, and still makes traditional clothing from skins and duffle. Joy was married to the late Luke Hallauk, who was also a well known carver.
