Annie Akulukjuk Kilabuk (b. 1991) is an emerging Inuk artist from Panniqtuuq (Pangnirtung), NU, who works with textiles, sealskin, leather, and furs.
Kilabuk is known for her crafts and fashion pieces, including her vibrant “pang hats” and mittens that have become signatures of hers. She draws inspiration from the spring and fall seasons in Nunavut, as well as from the Northern colours of the land and sea. Her work pays homage to her grandmother, whose traditional patterns she inherited and regularly applies in her sewing.
Kilabuk’s crafts have been exhibited and sold at the Winnipeg Art Gallery’s shop, the Adäka Cultural Festival in Whitehorse, and the Nunavut Art Festival in Iqaluit.
