Martha Tickie also known as Martha Tickiq is a contemporary Inuit artist born in Baker Lake, Nunavet Territory, Canada in the year 1939. Tickie is renown for her work with the genre of the mother and child.

Price range information: Sorry no information available.

What I enjoy most about Tickie is that she talks about not being afraid to experiment, or make a mistake.

Tickie learned to carve from her grandfather.

Its important to note that the artist carves year round except for July. She heads to cabin she built on a river. Sounds like paradise to me!

In addition to her work with the mother and child genre, Tickie also enjoys working with the musk ox.
