Artist Daniel Mitsui specializes in ink drawing. His meticulously detailed creations—created entirely by hand on paper or vellum—are held in collections worldwide. Since his baptism into the Catholic Church in 2004, he has focused most of his art on religious subjects.
Mitsui is a 2004 graduate of Dartmouth College (cum laude and senior fellow), where he studied drawing, oil painting, etching, lithography, wood carving, bookbinding, and film animation.
The Vatican commissioned Mitsui to illustrate a new edition of the Roman Pontifical in 2011. In 2012, he established Millefleur Press, an imprint for publishing fine books and broadsides of his artwork and typography. He is a prolific designer of custom bookplates.
Born in Georgia and raised in Illinois, Mitsui lives in Chicago with his wife, Michelle, and their three children.
