Annie Pootoogook was born in 1969 in Cape Dorset, Nunavut. She came from a long line of artists and began drawing in 1997. Annie’s drawings reflected her way of life as a contemporary female artist living and working in Canada’s far north. Ranging in expression from the apparently mundane and everyday to the personal and brutally intimate, Annie’s work is well known for her innovative and honest style. Her untimely passing in 2016 was a huge loss to the community of Cape Dorset and the new wave of contemporary Inuit art.

Each piece bring together refrences of various mythologies with fantastical and dream like elements, creating engaging and complex works of art.
