Annie Pootoogook

I like this Annie Pootoogook's work. I can imagine myself making drawings of the scenes of my life - this is a drawing of her grandmother I found this at
Annie Pootoogook (1969 - )

2001/02, Pencil, Ink, Pencil Crayon, 18.25 x 20.5"

When Pitseolak Ashoona was bedridden in her final years, her granddaughter visited and watched her draw. The senior artist told young Annie that some day she too would draw. "Now I can," Annie states proudly. Pitseolak's drawings from forty years ago provide valuable witness to her times; in the future, Annie's work will be similarly treasured.
