I grew up in El Paso, Texas which is the border town to Mexico but now reside in Bristol, England. My childhood was immersed in Catholic and Mexican culture which has influenced my art. People ask 'why skulls and what is your fascination with death?'.
The simple answer is that I have sadly experienced many losses from death in my 45 years on this earth. Each death has taught me something new about life and myself. I could spend my life mourning the death of my father, brother, aunt, best friends and grandparents but I choose to celebrate their life through an ornate skull that symbolises all that they were. I believe in the Mexican celebration 'Dia De Los Muertos' and all that it stands for. There is so much beauty in humans and that does not need to be lost because the body is no longer with us. I have taken many commissions from people who have lost loved ones and created a unique skull to capture the beauty of the person whom has passed.
