Joanie Ragee

Date of Birth: 2 May 1986
Place of Birth: Iqaluit
Residence: Cape Dorset
Subject Matter: Animals — bears (dancing and walking), walrus, seals, birds, and transformations
Joanie Ragee is a young Cape Dorset carver who started carving at the age of 14. He credits both his older brother Siutapik and his grandfather Inuk Munamie, who are also artists, for teaching him to carve in the traditional way, by letting him watch them carve. Joanie prefers making walking bears, either large or medium in size. His polar bears are realistically carved, with a good sense of mass and movement.
