Olooreak Etungat

    Based in Kinngait (Cape Dorset, NU), artist Olooreak Etungat is interested in jewellery-making and drawing. Although she was raised by two celebrated sculptors, she was inspired to take up drawing seeing the work of others in the community. Mostly a self-taught artist, Olooreak Etungat also took jewellery courses. Blending the traditional and the contemporary in sensitive and unexpected ways, her works often describe the roles of northern women and their southern counterparts who simultaneously cope with studies, family obligations, and employment.
