"Mortem Vitæ Sequens" ...Death Follows Life

The motto "Mortem Vitæ Sequens," which means "Death Follows Life" comes from a gravestone in the Burying Point Cemetery, the oldest burial ground in Salem, Massachusetts. To me, this means that death is always with us. It follows us as soon as we are born. Awareness of our own mortality can help us to respect life, death, and the earth that we will one day be returned to.

I create wall plaques, coffin trinket boxes, and other forms of art and home decor. I wanted to create gravestone and death inspired art to serve as a modern Memento Mori, a reminder that we all pass on from this life. All forms of mourning art are beautiful and fascinating, especially gravestone art and Victorian hair jewelry. I draw inspiration from them and from the rich history of New England.
