Quaraq started carving with hand tools at the age of 13. When he first started, he used to hide from others because he was to shy. He learned by watching his fathe, the renowned carver Tuqiqki Manomie. Quaraq likes to carve polar bears, seals, walruses ,birds with outstretched wings and transformation pieces. He describes his transformation pieces as similar to those of his father . His bears tend towards realism and they have movement.

He loves to carve and carving is the only way that he has ever earned a living. His works can be found in various galleries in Northern America.
