Field of Owls (1996)
Nikotai Mills (1936 - )
26" x 22¼"
Nikotye Mills is the daughter of the late Tudlik, and sister of the well-known sculptor Latcholassie. Nikotye moved from Cape Dorset to Moose Factory in the late 1960s for treatment of tuberculosis. While there she met and married a retired Canadian military officer, and they lived on a small farm near Moose Factory.
Nikotye moved back to Cape Dorset two years ago, now in her mid-fifties. She brought her first drawing to the co-op only last year. Her favourite themes are owls and loons; she incorporates these into both drawings and applique wall hangings which she brings to the co-op for sale.
