Heather Calderon, Hollywood, FlL Member Since January 2013 Artist Statement I think I've always been fascinated with skeletons after a childhood experience. I was afflicted with chronic sinus infections and ordered an x-ray of my face. When it came back, the doctor strongly suggested I look away as to not upset me. But, I insisted on seeing and my mother agreed. I was amazed and relieved at the same time to see my perfectly formed little skull. So beautiful. I began drawing skulls over and over and visualizing everyone's skull around me.
Day of the Dead art, (Dia de los Muertos) is one of my specialties, although I love to play with colors and experiment with other genres.
