These dolls are an Inuit interpretation of traditional Innu tea dolls.
Emily Flowers was born in Sango Bay, Labrador. She learned to sew from her mother and grandmother when she was about five years old. Later she started painting, tufting and sculpting caribou hair. Emily explains that back then you had to make whatever you needed. Fortunately Emily has continued her artistry. Her attention to fine detail is apparent in everything she creates. Emily hopes that through her work others will come to know the culture and traditions of the Inuit people. She says “My work is all about my ancestry. I can do it and I enjoy it. It’s a way of life.”
