Kenojuak Ashevak (1927-2013) is widely considered a Canadian national treasure. She was a groundbreaking artist for Kinngait Studios, in the Arctic territory of Nunavut and ultimately a pioneer of modern Inuit art. After establishing her reputation in 1960 with The Enchanted Owl--an image so popular it was reproduced on a Canadian postage stamp--she worked nearly nonstop. She contributed to Cape Dorset’s print collection almost every year and completed countless special commissions. Ashevak loved to make pictures of birds, particularly owls. Reflecting on her art, she said, “I am the light of happiness and I am a dancing owl.”
