Mosesie was born in Iqaluit but raised in Cape Dorset. He began carving at age eleven, learning under his father, the well-known carver Paulassie Pootoogook. Mosesie’s late mother, Ishuhungitok, was also an artist, and his brother, Anakadlak, is a carver. He sometimes collaborates on pieces with his father, with whom he learned carving techniques. Mosesie most often depicts seals, walrus and dancing bears in serpentine, a stone similar in composition to jade and found on the southern end of Nunavut’s Baffin Island. Mosesie’s work has been shown in exhibitions such as ‘Singing & Dancing & Playing’ and ‘Small Sculptures by Great Artists’, Feheley Fine Arts, Toronto (1997 and 1996), ‘Our Land Transforming: Celebrating the Enduring Spirit of the Inuit’, Arctic Raven Gallery, Friday Harbor, WA (1995) and ‘Miniaturen’, Inuit Galerie, Mannheim, Germany (1995).
