Note: Of her own work the artists stated, “I never make my drawings balance of both sides even though I try to. After I finish them, I see they are only a little balanced. I put the polar bear in this picture [Spirits with Bear ...] because I heard that somebody really liked another drawing of a polar bear that I made. I have never seen a spirit but I heard a man telling stories of them on the radio.” -Cape Dorset Annual Graphics Collection 1978, MF Feheley Publishers, 1978, p. 59, pl. 50
