Preening Owl by Kenojuak Ashevak Like many Inuit artists, Kenojuak Ashevak has spent most of her life living on the land in a manner not unlike that of her ancestors. She was born at the south Baffin Island camp of Ikirisaq, and grew up travelling from camp to camp on south Buffin and in . Also of note is the appearance in the last several years of collaborative prints done in the quixotic medium of sugar lift. Kenojuak’s efforts in this medium have provided some of the most commanding images in the and print collections and we draw your attention to those that are still available.

  Kenojuak has been involved in the success of the art program at Cape Dorset since its inception in the late s. She is the daughter of the late Ushuakjuk and Silaqqi. Her work is strongly focused on bold graphic representations of birds and other creatures, alongside female hunters.   Kenojuak Ashevak is internationally renowned for her tremendous accomplishments and contributions to Inuit art. Her simple compositions, bold lines and strong colours define the classic drawing Cape Dorset style. Kenojuak focuses on the process and aesthetics of drawing more than on the specifics of Inuit life and her memories.
