Eleeshushe Parr

Cape Dorset

(1896-1975)

“Elleeshushe’s creative talents brought her much respect in the community, not just for drawing and carving but for her skillful sewing and elaborate designs she brought to the making of traditional skin clothing. Along with her husband, Parr, she was a talented and prolific drawer, leaving a legacy of well over 1000 prints in the archives of the West Baffin Eskimo Co-operative.”
