Adopted by: Sita Saila
Mikisiti Saila
Female

As a child, Ooloosie was inspired to draw through occasional visits to the home of Kenojuak Ashevak. From these visits Ooloosie gained some valuable insights into the process of drawing and the importance of discipline and perseverance. At age 14 she won first prize at her high school drawing contest and a few years later she began selling her drawings to the Co-op.
Ooloosie has explored many diverse themes over the years but recently her work has been focused on the northern landscape around her home in Cape Dorset. Her bold and often large drawings are characterized by patches of colour and suggestive lines that aptly express the changing landscape throughout the seasons.
Ooloosie is quickly becoming one of Cape Dorset’s most promising emerging artists and her work has been shown at numerous galleries in North America as well as Art Toronto and the Art on Paper fair in New York.
