The iconic prints of late Canadian artist Kenojuak Ashevak (1927-2013) almost single-handedly came to define Arctic art both in Canada and on the world stage.

Her work is found in prestigious museum and private collections around the world.

Her images have been featured on everything from stamps and Canadian currency, to the stained glass windows at John Bell Chapel in Oakville, Ontario.

In this 2010 conversation filmed at her home in Cape Dorset, Nunavut, Ashevak said down with Eye on the Arctic's Eilís Quinn to discuss her work, her success and what she really thinks about the next generation of northern artists.
