Flossie Papidluk was an artist from Ulukhaktok (Holman), NT. Papidluk produced many drawings throughout her lifetime that were turned into prints by printmakers in Ulukhaktok. Papidluk’s prints are monochromatic and feature bold shapes and detailed lines. She frequently produced birds as well as narratives of community events and traditions. Papidluk contributed eleven prints to the Ulukhaktok Print Collection and her work was included in the exhibition "Holman: Forty Years of Graphic Art" (2001-2004), which took place at the Winnipeg Art Gallery. She passed away in 1994.View Long Biography and Citations
