Art Fundraiser LA | Timed Auction (40/60)


"Throughout the course of my wanderings some 20-plus years in Mexico, I found one of the most touching aspects of the culture is how they honor their dead. The ofrendas and golden flowers, fragrances and dulces are only a small part of the celebration honoring the departed. It's as if the spirits are right beside them. Unlike how I was raised to fear death and presence, this never-ending love and method of honor is what inspired me to my specific subject matter. 

I make tribute pieces. My intention is to honor the beings that have graced our earth with a statement of gratitude and respect for the gifts they brought to this life. Whether they danced or sang, drove a truck, or laundered jeans, all are important. All are subjects, from celebrity to housewife, each deserves to be remembered with detail from dimples to crumpled clothing. I am honored to pay homage to them, joyfully and individually."
