Abraham was born southeast of Paulatuk in November of 1951. After leaving school, he continued his formal education on the road. "My acquaintances, be they artists or craftsmen, became my teachers. I have always kept myself open to any and all possible avenues of artistic expression in an effort to understand the subtle nuances and emotions related to the creation and appreciation of art."
Abraham's art includes sculptures of bronze castings, and Inuit-design carvings in whalebone and soapstone. And he is well-known for his contemporary architectural and monumental corporate commissions.
