Artist Background:

Joyce grew up in the small community of Clyde River. She did a lot of arts and crafts as a child and loved to play outside as many Inuit do in their childhood. Her grandmother taught her the basics of sewing when Joyce was 12 and her mother started teaching how to crochet hats. She now sews beautiful parkas for adults and children, mitts, snow pants and beaded jewelry. She sells her crocheted hats and her beaded jewelry to Clyde River people.
