The Day of the Dead is a celebration of loved one who have passed on.  The holiday has an amazing aesthetic featuring brightly colored skulls, flowers, friends, family, and good food & drink. My original pieces were created for a Dia de los Muertos themed show in Alexandria, VA.  After that first show, I expanded the series.   Most of my work is centered around creating archetypes for each of the skulls.  As time went on, I began to experiment with different sizes & types of skulls so a more decorative element began to emerge.

While the show in Alexandria is held annually, I stopped participating a few years ago.  About that time I had decided the Day of the Dead theme had run its course for me so I retired the theme.

Curious about how a piece was made?  Want to know where I found a particular material?  Please don’t hesitate to ask.  I’m more than happy to help you recreate any of the pieces here or your very own masterpiece.
