Jean Blodgett, "Osuitok Ipeelee" in Alma Houston, Inuit Art: An Anthology, Watson and Dwyer, Winnipeg,1988, page 46.

"His representations of the female range from portrait busts with delicate facial features, long eyelashes, pert noses and elaborate braids, to the buxom figures of his fisherwomen. He pays tribute to the Inuit woman's ability to fish, sew and care for children, and he frankly admires their physical form."
