Johnysa Mathewsie (1984 - )
Johnysa comes from a Cape Dorset family of famous artists. His grandfather Lukta Qiatsuq and his father Qiatsuq Qiatsuq are both carvers. Padlaya Qiatsuq, who is an active renowned Cape Dorset artist, is Johnysa's uncle.
Johnysa learned to carve at an early age by watching other artists in his family and the community. Now, in his thirties, he is an established carver with approximately 20 years of experience. Canadian geese are his specialties.
