Showing Olooreak Etungat
Cape Dorset has earned a worldwide reputation for the quality and originality of limited edition prints made by its member artists. Every year since 1959 the print making studios (now known as Kinngait Studios) have released an annual catalogued collection of between 30 and 60 images as well as numerous commissions and special releases. Kinngait Studios is the longest continuous running print studio in Canada.

Olooreak Etungat is an adoptive daughter of Abraham Etungat, a well-known sculptor from Cape Dorset.
Although she has taken a couple of jewelry courses, Olooreak is largely a self-taught artist who was inspired to take up drawing seeing the work of others in the community. Olooreak’s work blends the traditional and the contemporary, often in quite sensitive and unexpected ways.
Born on April 8, 1971 in Iqaluit, NU. Nationality is Inuit
