Inuit Artist Kenojuak Ashevak

As some of you already know from the Inuit Art Coin article on the Free Spirit Gallery website, Kenojuak Ashevak was the Inuit artist who designed a Canadian 25 cent quarter coin. She is one of the highest internationally regarded of all Inuit artists. There are two articles on Kenojuak in the current spring issue of Inuit Art Quarterly. She was also the designer for a church stained glass in southern Ontario and one of these articles describes the experience of this particular project. As one can see from her art prints and the design on the Canadian coin as well as the stained glass, the Inuit art of Kenojuak Ashevak is actually quite distinctive.
