KUDLUAJUK ASHOONA

1958-

Kudluajuk Ashoona was born in Cape Dorset on December 2, 1958. Her biological parents were the well-known carvers, Kabubuwa and Tayara Tunnillie. She was adopted by the family of the notable graphic artist, Simeonie Quppapik. Kudluajuk did not seriously begin to make art until 2011. In a rare reversal of influence, she was inspired to draw by her daughter, Nicotye Samayualie.  Kudluajuk’s works are very narrative and literal. Her drawings often depict scenes of contemporary family life.
Family outings, domestic gatherings and leisure activities are some of her favorite subjects.
