Nicotye Mills was an artist who focused on prints and drawing and textiles who worked in Kinngait (Cape Dorset), NU. Owls, loons and the wildlife of the North are among her favourite subjects, which she shares with her father, the famed carver and drawer Tudlik, and brother, the carver Latcholassie Akesuk. Although she began making art later in life, Mills’ graphic work became a fixture of the Cape Dorset Print collection in the 1990s, and was shown nationally and internationally.View Long Biography and Citations
