Mary Pudlat


Cape Dorset, Nunavut Territory, Canada


“A prolific Canadian Inuit artist, Mary Pudlat retains clear memories of her early years living in the traditional Inuit hunting lifestyle in the area near Povungnituk in Arctic Quebec. Orphaned as a teenager, she lived for a while with her brother in Ivujivik before moving to Baffin Island in the early-1940s. There she married Samuelie Pudlat in 1943 and continued to live in the traditional semi-nomadic camps along the south shore of Baffin Island until she and her husband and children moved permanently to Cape Dorset in 1963.
