Johnny Manning

1985-, Nunavut, Cape Dorset

Manning started carving when he was 14 or 15 years old. Johnny learned to carve by watching Nujaliaq Qimirpik when he visited Cape Dorset. 

Today Johnny is one of the most productive carver. He is known for his famous dancing bears, easily recognizable by their appearance as ballet dancers.
