Mathew Nuqingaq


Iqaluit, Nunavut Territory, Canada

(1967- )

Mathew grew up in Broughton Island, but now lives in Iqaluit with his wife Darlene and his dog Napuq. He has always been interested in being an artist even when he was a child. He started making jewellery a couple of years ago when he decided to register for an evening course at Arctic College. He enjoyed it very much, and since then has taken quite a few courses. He is now studying jewellery part-time and teaching part-time at Joamie School as a Culture Instructor. He teaches the children how to work with wood and how to make traditional tools.
