Jobie Crow is an Inuit sculptor who often carves works depicting people boating, hunting, fishing, and kayaking. Jobie Crow was born in the year 1944.

A fellow artist named Charlie Sappa taught Jobie Crow how to carve in 1967. Crow also sold his first sculpture that year.

The artist spent much of his younger life in the community of Kuujjuarapik.

Crow is married to a fellow artist named Sarah. The couple had five children.

The artist is now based out of Umiujaq, Quebec, Canada.

Crow often carves using soapstone.

Price range information: Sorry none available.

I enjoy the detail the artist puts in the animals of the hunt such as the seal. Also interesting are the little details such as the hunters or fishermen smoking a pipe whilst they perform a task.
