Biography  
Nori Peter


Recognized as one of Canada's foremost painters, Nori Peter devoted her time and talent to the depiction of native life - primarily the life of the Inuit of the Canadian Arctic. Her insight into Inuit life and her keen sense of respect and admiration for these native Canadians is evidenced in her portrayals of these strong yet gentle people.

Peter studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Budapest. Emigrating to Canada in 1957, she eventually settled on an Ojibwa reserve near Peterborough, and from there made frequent trips to the north to paint Inuit life.

Playing an active role in her creative process was her Miranda Japanese camera.

Nori Peter died from cancer in 2009.
