 Kakulu Saggiaktok – Kakulu was in born 1940 on the Hudson’s Bay Company supply ship Nascopie, en route from Clyde River to Pangnirtung. At that time, her parents and older brother were members of a small group of Inuit who travelled from south Baffin Island to trap and hunt furs in the more northern regions. Her mother was Ikayukta, a well-known graphic artist and her older brother was Qavaroak Tunnillie, a well-known and prolific sculptor. Kakulu began to draw in the early 1960s when the newly established West Baffin Eskimo Co-operative introduced its graphic arts project. Her approach has evolved considerably over the years and she has developed a signature style that is marked by a playful yet sophisticated sense of imagery. She continues to explore her own unique expressive voice by participating in the workshops offered at Kinngait Studios. She is married to Saggiaktok, who for many years was a printmaker in the stonecut studio. He would frequently proof and edit those images by Kakulu which had been chosen for stonecut prints. They live in Cape Dorset with their four children.
