Daniel Ramirez (Saginaw Chippewa)

About the Artist

Daniel received his MFA from the University of Michigan and began his art career focusing on painting contemporary woodland images in memory of his Saginaw Chippewa mother. Over the years, his work has tackled many themes, including "Caring for our Elders" and artistic interpretations around the theme of Matriarchy, which were featured at the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, DC. He is currently working on a five-year project to create the "world's lomgest Native American painting," with the goal of a 100-foot piece honoring Native women from all 50 of the United States. A continual innovator, he works in watercolor, acrylic, charcoal, and pastels and has also interpreted his designs using digital imagery and other new media.
