Family by Lucy Tasseor Tutsweetok

Lucy Tasseor is from Arviat, the southernmost community on the Nunavut mainland, close to the geographical centre of Canada. The local stone, a tough grey steatite, is harder than the steel tools traditionally used by Arviat carvers. In the 1960s, Tasseor began creating a unique style of sculpture, simply by using an axe to chip away the hard stone. As Inuit Art expert Ingo Hessel explains: “[Arviat sculptors] communicate essential ideas of form and content with a minimum of elaboration.” Tasseor’s work is recognizable by its flat planes, with a distinct and simple use of incised line.

I'm a Musician, an Artist and a Composer, and I like to create things that are off the beaten path. You could say that being creative is my religion which I chose to voice through art in its many forms.
This has been my profession for the last 20 years, and when I am not busy creating something new, I enjoy curating content and showing those that look towards me that there are many brilliant, wonderful and talented artists out there who deserve their due attention and recognition.
