Tillikasak grew up in the community of Inujuak. Her teacher taught Tallikasak the basics of sewing when she was younger but decided that she is more interested in beading. Tallikasak finds beading to be very calming and good for her mind. She continues to create beautifully beaded earrings, and is especially fascinated with complex flower patterns.
