A 2016 original drawing in Nicotye's iconic style. Her simple compositional approach often features the land and sky as the image focus.

coloured pencil on paper

Nicotye Samayualie (1983 -   ) is fascinated by patterns and arrangements of disparate objects in nature and man-made materials. Many of her drawings depict everyday items such as the contents of a pantry shelf, a table of shiny fishing lures or boxes of camping supplies. Nicotye has had her original drawings shown at the Toronto Art Fair and in 2013 her work was featured in an Italian publication, ‘Annie e le Altre’, an ambitious scholastic study that explored the role of women artists in Kinngait (Cape Dorset).
