(prints and products available HERE)

There have been many paintings of Frida Kahlo.  While my painting is not Frida, it is most definitely heavily influenced by her. Mexican artist Frida Kahlo is iconic for her self-portraits of pain and passion, using bold and vibrant colors. She is celebrated in Mexico for her attention to Mexican and its indigenous culture and her unique depiction of the female experience. Hopefully, Frida would approve!
