At the tender age of three, my Mom framed my first piece of artwork, and swore I’d grow up to be an artist. Although my life path has taken me in many directions, I feel a constant pull toward the creative process. I am happiest when I am in my element, producing artwork that has my unique outlook on life and experiences woven into it.
Things that inspire my work: sadness; which I find oddly beautiful, laughter, tears, exaggerated features, bizarre expressions, bright colors, all things whimsical, swirls, creepy crawlies, skulls, death, life and everything pretty in between.
The inspiration for my current work stems from the Mexican celebration El Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead which occurs every year starting on October 31 and ending November 2, Sugar skulls are one of the most widely recognized symbols of this colorful celebration.
