MEET THE ARTIST
Graciela is originated from Mexico City, where the tradition of the Day of the Dead is still alive.
“Since I was a child, the Day Of The Dead has been a very important tradition. I remember walking by the markets, perceiving a smell of incense, seeing colorful “papel picado” (cut paper) cempasúchil (marigold) flowers and sugar skulls of all colors, sizes and flavors. There was a sense of nostalgia in the air that invited to remember our love ones that have left. Today, I see the Day of The Dead as a beautiful opportunity to share with my kids and talk to them about our ancestors. It’s a beautiful feeling to build an altar that includes sugar skulls with their name on it, honoring their lives.”
Graciela is ready to share this beautiful tradition, and her beautiful handcrafted SUGAR SKULLS with the world!
