Born in 1963, Ningiukulu Teevee is an almost fully self-taught artist; she is probably the most well-known of Kinngait Studios in Cape Dorset. Her work denotes a clear interest in design, the creation of patterns and the fascinating relation between abstraction and representation. Since her rst participation in the Cape Dorset’s Annual Print Collection in 2004, she has presented her prints and drawings at many solo exhibitions in various renowned museums and galleries. Her in-depth knowledge of Inuit lore and her commitment to the depiction of contemporary Northern realities make her works some of the most sought after by art collectors.
