"The original “La Calavera Catrina” was as a zinc etching (1910 -1913) by Méxican printmaker, illustrator and lithographer Jose Guadalupe Posada. “Catrina” has become an icon of Día de los Muertos. I loved painting this rendition of her, feeling her strong spirit, living larger than life, glamorously and with spice! My hope is that future generations will embrace her lively spirit and adopt the wonderful tradition of Dia de los Muertos with their loved ones. Rock on Catrina!"
