Mayoreak (Mayureak) Ashoona

Mayoreak (Mayureak) Ashoona



Cape Dorset, Nunavut Territory, Canada

(1946- )

A daughter of noted graphic artist Sheouak Parr, who was one of the first women to participate in the early drawing projects in the 1950s, Mayureak grew up traditionally on the land. She became the partner of artist Qaqaq Ashoona, and started drawing and carving in the early 1960s, though her graphics were not shown until later. After Qaqaq’s death in 1996, Mayureak moved back to Cape Dorset from their outcamp and began to produce work that was stylistically more in accord with her own interests and that were often on a larger scale. In 2003, she was elected to the Royal Canadian Academy.
