About Sweet Sugar Skulls

Over twenty years ago, I was fortunate to be visiting Mexico City on Dia de los Muertos. I was astounded by the beauty and feeling of this special day. It was something I never forgot. As my son was growing up, I wanted to expose him to different cultures and different ideas, especially after his grandmother passed away on the Day of the Dead. I created a party game for him and invited the neighbor kids. The coloring sheets were popular, that the adults asked to color too. From that original party game, came the idea for the coloring book images that make up the downloads you find in my shop (and in bookstores) today. Since then, I have been creating Dia de los Muertos Art, paintings, coloring books, and paper mache sugar skulls. I love working with bright colors, water colors, and acrylics, but you will find that my pen & ink drawings allow you to get creative with your own colors.

As an author with a background in Marine Biology, you might see marine life influence a lot of my work. Enjoy!

In my shop, you will find handmade items like paper mache sugar skulls, original watercolors, and original acrylic paintings. You will also find art prints and t-shirts. I personally create all designs for my prints and t-shirts, but I do not print them. Instead, I work closely with the manufacturers to ensure that you receive high quality art prints and T-shirts with my designs. I also try to choose more sustainable t-shirt printing methods and organic cotton, or "sustainable" T's when available.
