Ricky was born in Cape Dorset on October 15, 1987. His biological parents, Mary Mathewsie and Inuit carver Peter Adamie, gave Ricky up for adoption to Mathew Savaikju and Martha Jaw.
It is due to young Ricky's brilliant talent that he has already received attention amongst collections. His interest lies in carving traditional Arctic scenes such as kayak hunters and dog teams. Hide artist biography
