Day of the Dead Art – Current

For the duration of [email protected], my Etsy shop will be on Vacation Mode.  It will reopen around June 15, 2016.  Purchases can be made directly through me.

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 I’ve had fun creating these works, I think the theme has run its course for me. In 2016 I plan to use the last of my remaining skulls.  Once those are finished, then I will officially retire the Day of the Dead 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.
