Helen Kaloon, Gjoa Haven, NU: Fibre
Helen started sewing when she was 8 years old. She combines her seamstress skills and artistic hand to record her peoples’ culture and heritage on appliqué tapestry art. She creates a new style of traditional clothing but also beautiful tapestries and wall hangings. Helen Rose designs from her imagination – seal and fish mermaids, geese flying with children and seals with children riding on them.
