Doug Fountain embodies the spirit and the power of the Great American Indian. A direct descendant of the legendary Chief Sitting Bull, Doug and his family are proud members of the Spirit Lake Dakota Sioux tribe. This distinguished legacy uniquely enables this extraordinary artist to use the knowledge and wisdom of his heritage to create his original, one-of-a-kind, limited edition art.
Trained as an architectural engineer and then as a professional photographer, Fountain believes he was called to his creative work to elevate the awareness of tradition in the culture of the Native American Indians to their universal love and respect got the Earth and all its elements.
Fountain credits his success and the enormous interest in his work to his firm belief in positive affirmations, a genuine belief in himself, and joy in creating his work.
Fountain’s impressive body of work includes totems, masks, sculptures, his continuing energy series and the circles of life series.
