About Jessie Kenalogak

Jessie Kenalogak was born in Back River in the early 1950s and currently lives and works in Qamani’tuaq (Baker Lake). Working primarily in drawing, her most meaningful artistic influences came from her grandfather Angushadluk, one of the most important and respected artists ever to work in Baker Lake, and her aunt, Mary Singaqti, another highly respected Baker Lake artist. The titles of her drawings, her very personal interpretations of her art, serve as an expressive element of the overall work.
