“I was really interested in the concept of the Mexican ‘Day of the Dead’ and their sugar skull tradition. It fascinates me that death is seen in such different ways in various cultures.

This particular piece has been very tough on the knees! It’s been so engaging though, sometimes I’ll get to work on it and 2 hours will slip by in what feels like a few minutes”
