“I started drawing in November 2012, Ningeokuluk Teevee inspired me to start drawing at our Nunavut Teaching Education Program class. My first drawing was an owl. I thought about what to draw for my next image and my late grandfather’s carvings (Latcholassie Akesuk) came up. So I drew a green bird shape like my grandfather’s carvings, along with small birds.”

“When I went down to the litho shop to sell my first drawing, I was very nervous wondering whether they would buy it or not. My first drawing was an image of my late grandfather’s [Latcholassie Akesuk] carving of a bird. I was so proud to get paid for that drawing and it inspired me to do more drawings.”
