A beautiful greeting card of my original illustration, "Sugar Skull". Traditionally, sugar skulls are eaten during Mexico's Day of the Dead, which is a time to honor and pray for loved ones who have passed away. They are made out of cane sugar and brightly decorated with items such as icing, feathers, colored foil, and beads. This skull was originally hand-drawn and colored with pen and ink. It is blank inside and comes with a white envelope. The card is 5"x 4".
I started as a student of art history, and then became an elementary art teacher. Watching my students create inspired me to start making art of my own. I still love history, and I love to teach, but I have also found my own artistic voice and I'm addicted--I can't stop creating! My primary medium is drawing using ink and I also enjoy dabbling in watercolor and acrylic paint. I live in Portland, OR with my husband and two dogs. I consider it a huge compliment that you are here, reading about my shop and considering my art. Thank you for stopping by! Like what you see?
