George Auksaq

Born in Sanirajak (NU), Inuk artist George Auksaq is based in Igloolik (NU). As his mother did, the artist decided to work with other mediums, such as antler and bone since the stone from his area is not ideal for polishing. George Auksaq also undertook some jewellery-making courses at the Nunavut Arctic College (Igloolik, NU)
