Padloo Samayualie is a multi-disciplinary artist who works in sculpture, animation and jewellery and is best known for her drawings. A recurring subject in Samayualie's works are the architectural details of both the interior and exterior of buildings, from skyscrapers to small homes. The artist also depicts images of her home community of Kinngait (Cape Dorset), NU, as well as the landscape that surrounds it. Samayualie's drawings frame and crop her subjects in a way that shares the artist's point of view directly with the audience; from looking down at her dinner plate to looking out the window of a plane as it flies over water on a clear day.

Samayualie’s first solo exhibition, Padloo Samayualie: North and South (2017) was at Feheley Fine Arts, Toronto, ON. It displayed a range of drawings by the artist from her landscapes to object-based design work. Samayualie’s work is held in public collections internationally including the Winnipeg Art Gallery in Winnipeg, MB and the Richard F. Brush Museum, Canton, NY, U.S. Her print Amiarutit (Brushes) was chosen for the Cape Dorset Annual Print Collection in 2012.
