This biography from the Archives of AskART:
An Inuit artist born in Cape Dorset, Nunavut, Annie Pootoogook does colored pencil drawings that reflect her personal experiences and break tradition with artwork subjects usually associated with that culture---igloos, wildlife genre, people wearing parkas, etc.  Instead she focuses on modern Inuit society and the less-than-romanticized or realistic complications of living in that society.  She resists the cliches, and confronts issues of modern culture such as media influence and technology challenges.

Beginning her drawing activity in 1997 at age thirty one, she took lessons at the West Baffin Eskimo Cooperative, an entity that encourages Inuits to produce income from their artwork.  She came from a family of artists as her grandmother, Pitseolak Ashoona, was a noted Inuit draftsperson, and her mother, Napachie Pootoogook, was a well-known printmaker in West Baffin.

In 2007, Annie Pootoogook's work reflecting the concerns of contemporary Inuit living in Canada will be featured at the 2007 Montreal Biennale and at Documenta 12.
