About artist/note:

“Hoot”, possibly the last print created by the artist before her death in 2006, is featured on the cover of the 2006 annual Cape Dorset print catalogue. According to the catalogue’s forward, Meelia’s “Hoot” was made the cover image as it “[set] the tone for the collection; full of life, colour and humour.”
