Pitaloosie Saila began drawing in the early 1960s, and she has consistently maintained her own individual style. Her work has been included in annual Cape Dorset Print Collections since 1968.
Pitaloosie Saila’s imagery often focuses on the mother and child image, in which the woman is depicted as strong and nurturing. Birds and animals as well as her own memories have also provided subject matter. Her bold images lend themselves well to the print medium and her work has been continuously featured in Cape Dorset Annual Print Collections. Her lithographs in particular show a full understanding of the potential of this medium in which many of her iconic images were made.
