1935 – 2008
Anirnik Ragee was born in 1935 to artists Jamasie and Angotigolu Teevee. Her siblings Nikotai Simigak, Parnee Peter, and Simeonie Teevee are also artists. Anirnik only drew for a short period while she was living at Tikirak camp, where she met her husband, Kuppapik Ragee. Her sons, Turaq, Tapanie, and Quiatsuq became carvers. Anirnik’s artwork has been exhibited at galleries such as Feheley Fine Arts, the Arctic Inuit Art Gallery, and the Canadian Guild of Crafts in Quebec.
