Description:

Like many Cape Dorset artists, Kenojuak spent most her life living on the land in a manner not unlike that of her ancestors. Born at the south Baffin Island camp known as Ikirisaq, she grew up traveling from camp to camp on south Baffin and Arctic Quebec.

As a very young woman, Kenojuak was married to Johnniebo and lived with him in various camps including Keakto in the late 1950's, both Kenojuak and Johnniebo first experimented with carving and drawing. They moved to Cape Dorset in 1966 in order for thier children to attend school, and continued to work closely together until Johnniebo's death.

Kenojuak's drawings were immediately captivating, and she has been represented in almost every annual collection since 1959. Her work has also been included in several special commissions and projects. One of her images was selected for the inclusion in the World Wildlife Print Portfolio Released in 1978. In the same year, the Commonwealth Print Portfolio featured one of her works. Her art and life were the focus of the limited edition book entitled "Graphic Arts of the Inuit: Kenojuak", published in 1981. In 1988, Via Rail Canada commissioned a large mural from Kenojuak for their Club Car series, which featured some of the most highly respected Canadian artists. Kenojuak's print Nunavut Qajanatuk (Our Beautiful Land) was commissioned by Indian and Northern Affairs Canada to commemorate the signing of the Inuit Land Claim Agreement in Principle, in April 1990. To commemorate the signing of the Final Agreement early in 1994, Kenojuak conceived and hand-colored a large and exclusive lithograph entitled Nunavut. Her commissioned print Radiant Owl, for the Artist for Kids Trust in Vancouver was released early in the spring of 1996. This was followed by a commission for the International Society of Urologists - a print entitled Owl's Domain. Her work is still very much in demand, and she has completed several commissions for commercial galleries in recent years.

April 1st, 1999 marked the official inception of the new Territory of Nunavut in Canada's Arctic. To commemorate this historic event, Dorset Fine Arts released a special edition of 99 prints by Kenojauk, a large diptych entitled Siilavut, Nunavut (Our Environment, Our Land).

Kenojuak has been accorded several honors over the years. In 1961 she was the subject of a film produced by the National Film Board about her life on the land and as an artist. She received the Order of Canada in 1967. In 1969 she and Johnniebo traveled to Ottawa to collaborate on a mural which hung in the Canadian Pavilion Expo '70 in Osaka, Japan. In 1970 her print, Enchanted Owl was reproduced on a stamp commemorating the centennial of the Northwest Territories, and again in 1993 Canada Post selected her drawing entitled "The Owl" to be reproduced on their .86 cent stamp.

In 1980, Kenojuak traveled to Rotterdam, Holland to be presented at "The Inuit Print" exhibition which was opened by the Queen of the Netherlands. In 1991, she Traveled to Seoul, South Korea to attend the opening of an exhibition of prints and sculpture. In 1994, she was invited to open the exhibition Arctic Spirit: 35 Years of Canadian Inuit Art at the Frye Art Museum in Seattle, Washington. She also traveled to Ottawa in the fall of 1994 for the opening of Isumavut: The Artistic Expression of Nine Cape Dorset Women.

In 1992, Kenojuak was awarded Honorary Degrees from both Queen's University and the University of Toronto. In 1996 she received the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award at the National Aboriginal Achievement Awards Ceremony in Vancouver. In the Spring of 2001 Kenojuak was introduced into Canada's Walk of Fame, and traveled with her daughter Silaqi to attend the ceremonies in Toronto. She is the first Inuit Artist to be so honored, and joins many other famous and accomplished Canadians.

Much loved and well respected, Kenojuak continues to add to her long list of accomplishments. She has recently been working on a very special commission - the design for a stained glass window to be installed in the chapel of a private school outside of Toronto.
