Girramay Traditional Owner
Painter and weaver

Daniel Beeron (Galaman) is a Girramay Traditional Owner who lives at Murray Upper, north of Cardwell in North Queensland.  Daniel is a painter, weaver and potter. Daniel began working with ceramics in 2009 and continues to explore and extend the forms and imagery of the sculptural work he creates.

Daniel began weaving mostly out of curiosity and now extends that interest into his other arts practice. Drawing on his cultural heritage, he considers the practice of weaving is more than making something that is both practical and beautiful; it is about consolidating cultural practices and ensuring it survives through to the next generation. His arts practice draws from an exploration of traditional culture and traditional design.  Daniel’s work is held in a number of collections and was most recently acquired for the Australian Museum (Sydney), ArtBank Collection (Sydney) and the University of Queensland Art Museum (Brisbane).
