Noel Avadluk

Noel Avadluk is an Inuit artist born and raised in Umingmaktok, Nunavut.

Noel primarily carves marble or serpentine, a local stone found in open pit mines in Nunavut. Serpentine is a rock similar in composition to jade. Just like jade, it is a very hard stone, so it takes a lot of artistic vitality to carve it.
