Lavinia Van Heuvelen, Iqaluit, NU: Jewellery
I am a graduate of Nunavut Arctic College where I studied jewellery and metalwork. My elegant and detailed jewelry embraces iconic symbols of Inuit culture. My passion for art stems from my mother, Illisapi, who is also an artist. I was the recipient of the 2012 Bank of Montreal 1st Award and my work has been presented in exhibitions in Canada and Europe.
