May 31, 2007 — Canadian Inuit artist Shirley Moorhouse's textiles are shaped by intrinsic Inuit traditions and collective experiences and memories of living on the land. She produces one-of-a-kind, hand-sewn wall hangings. Her hangings incorporate embroidery, beadwork, tanned caribou hide, wool, feathers as well as non-traditional found objects into the design. Shirley Moorhouse lives in Happy Valley-Goose Bay, Labrador. Her work is exhibited nationally and internationally. This summer you'll find her work on display at Carleton University in Ottawa. She told Lucy Martin that each piece tells another chapter in an ongoing exploration of her Inuit ancestry.
