Maribel Ramirez

Maribel Ramirez graduated from KCAI in 2015 and pursued an art education certification from UMSL in 2019. She currently teaches art education, k-12, in Bismarck, MO. Maribel's work is a play on portraiture and incorporation of her cultural roots as a Mexican American. Inspiration is drawn from the traditional craft of papel picado (cut paper) intricate designs and the use of saturated hues to create a painting or mixed media piece of work.
