I came across one artist, Germaine Arnaktauyok, and I really dig her style. She's very popular here and I've seen many of her art prints decorating the walls of people's homes.

And last but not least, I contributed to the local art scene a little bit as well :) I held a Digital Painting Workshop at the Nunavut Arctic College on four evenings and one Beginner's Course on the weekend. It was fascinating to see the students getting into it so fast and with such great interest. Really proud of all of them!
