Nancy Saunders

Nancy Saunders is a multidisciplinary Inuit artist originally from Kuujjuaq, in Nunavik (Northern Québec). She studied at Concordia University where she explored a range of media, including drawing, painting and sculpture. Her creative process blends traditional Inuit art with modern forms by exploring themes rooted in her ancestral heritage but using contemporary art approaches. In so doing, she hopes to sustain and renew the vitality of Inuit art. Nancy Saunders’ work was shown at the Montréal Visual Arts Centre’s McClure Gallery in 2015. More recently, she was selected to create an original artistic piece for the Canadian Museum of Nature’s Canada Goose Arctic Gallery as part of Canada’s 150th anniversary.
