Artist Background:

Angie grew up in the community of Clyde River. Her mother is a creative and efficient sewer who taught her basic sewing beginning about four years ago. She now makes her own parkas and snow pants. Angie started making her own parkas because she is fussy about what she likes to wear during winter. She is a young talented seamstress today and loves to design her own outerwear. She loves to work with cloth and sealskins. Angie gets a lot of compliments from her parkas and many people request custom orders from her for parkas and snow pants but she prefers to make them for herself at the moment.

Artist’s Involvement with Traditional Inuit culture: Fishing, Camping


“Try to make things, it seems hard to make things at first but it becomes possible once you learn.”
