"There is no word for art. We say it is to transfer something from the real to the unreal.
I am an owl, and I am a happy owl. I like to make people happy and everything happy.
I am the light of happiness and I am a dancing owl."
- Kenojuak Ashevak 


Kenojuak Ashevak was born in 1927 in an igloo in an Inuit camp, Ikirasaq, at the southern coast of Baffin Island.
She became one of the first Inuit women in Cape Dorset to begin drawing. She worked in graphite, coloured pencils and felt-tip pens, and occasionally used poster paints, watercolours or acrylics. She created many carvings from soapstone and thousands of drawings, etchings, stonecut prints and prints — all sought after by museums and collectors. 
She passed away in the beginning of 2013.
