This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Eleeshushe Parr (Elishusee/Ilisusi/Elishushi) was an Inuit graphic artist. Married to famous sculptor and printmaker Parr (1893-1969), the duo raised nine children together and worked to become some of the most prolific artists in Cape Dorset. The couple led a nomadic lifestyle until the 1960's, when Parr's husband grew too old to hunt, and they settled in Cape Dorset. Parr contributed to the Cape Dorset Graphics annual collection between 1966 and 1970 and has participated in numerous exhibitions throughout Canada, the United States and in Sweden.

Over her lifetime, she produced 1,160 drawings.

Her works can be found in the collections of the Winnipeg Art Gallery, the Art Gallery of Ontario and the McMichael Canadian Collection, among others.

Parr's sons, Nuna (b. 1949), Eepervik and Quvianatuliak Parr (b. 1930), are well-known artists in Cape Dorset. Parr's grandson, Peter Parr (b. 1970), is also a thriving artist.
