About the artist:
After 60 extraordinary years Pitaloosie Saila continues to produce art in her hometown, having contributed drawings to the prestigious Cape Dorset Print Collection numerous times. She is the sole remaining active artist since the earliest years of printmaking in the community. Saila fearlessly explores the subjects and creative style that make her work unique. Her steadfast belief in the importance of family in the broadest sense and her admiration of female strength are the framework of her artistic expression. The artist has mastered the nuances of various media—be it pencil, felt-tip pen, watercolour, or acrylic paint. Saila’s drawings and prints are represented in every major public art collection in Canada and her work is exhibited extensively nationally and internationally.
