(1940 - 2006)
Meelia was the younger sister of the late Sheojuk Etidlooie. Like her sister, Meelia was a latecomer to the graphic arts, and her work reveals a similar mature confidence and talent. Encouraged by her sister to draw, Meelia began bringing her drawings to the studios in 2000 and has since worked in both etching and lithography during workshops held in Cape Dorset. Her work has been represented in the annual collections since 2001.
In the 2006 annual print collection, Meelia is represented by four images, all displaying her sense of humour and originality. Bold, exaggerated shapes and colour occupy Meelia's graphic sensibility, particularly evident in her print from 2006, entitled 'Early Bird' and the charming, 'Hoot'. Like her late sister, Sheojuk, Meelia's images have great graphic appeal. She will be missed.
