The Day of the Dead theme was officially retired in June 2016.  Please check the Mixed Media gallery or my Etsy Shop for the remaining pieces.

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.
