In the early 1960s, he settled in the community of Baker Lake with his wife, Marion Tuu’luq, who later became a prominent tapestry and graphic artist. In order to make a living, Anguhadluq began drawing in 1968 at the age of 73. Anguhadluq’s experience as a hunter living on the land greatly influenced his art.
