Description: This is the 50th Anniversary of Cape Dorset printmaking ! 1959 - 2009

Shuvinai was born in Cape Dorset in August, 1961. She is the daughter of Kiuga Ashoona and Sorosilutu, both well known for their contributions to the arts in Cape Dorset.

Shuvinai began drawing in 1995. She works with pen and ink, coloured pencils and markers and her sensibility for the landscape around the community of Cape Dorset is particularly impressive. Her recent work is very personal and often meticulously detailed. Shuvinai's work was first included in the Cape Dorset annual print collection in 1997, with two small dry-point etchings entitled Interior (1997-33) and Settlement (1997-34). Since then, she has become a committed and prolific graphic artist, working daily in the Kinngait Studios.

Suvinai's work has attracted the attention of several notable private galleries, as well as public institutions. She was featured along with her aunt, Napachie Pootoogook, and her grandmother, the late Pitseolak Ashoona, in the McMichael Canadian Collection's 1999 exhibition entitled "Three Women, Three Generations". More recently she was profiled, along with Kavavaow Mannomee of Cape Dorset and Nick Sikkuark of Gjoa Haven, in the Spring 2008 issue of Border Crossings, a Winnipeg-based arts magazine.

In an unusual contemporary collaboration, Suvinai recently worked with Saskatchewan-based artist, John Noestheden, on a "sky-mural" that was exhibited at the 2008 Basel Art Fair and was shown again at Toronto’s 2008 "Nuit Blanche". Her most recent exhibition presented her work alongside Toronto-based artist Shari Boyle at the Justin Bernicke Gallery at Hart House. Shuvinai is also the subject of a documentary art film to be released next year.

In this annual collection of 2009, Suvinai is represented by a large etching entitled Aujaqsiut Tupiq (Summer Tent) (2009-33) and her autobiographical and enigmatic Quilt of Dreams (2009-34).
