“I am a hunter and I know the land and animals of the north. I am particularly inspired by the bowhead whale, because nobody really knows much about them. I have also drawn the things I see around me in the community—boats, heavy equipment and airplanes—on large sheets of paper. My inspiration to be an artist comes from my aunt, Kenojuak Ashevak, because she is the oldest and the best.”
