Frida Kahlo 1907 - 1954

"I am not sick. I am broken. But I am happy as long as I can paint."
~Frida Kahlo
Mexican Artist
Mexico's most famous woman artist, thought to be mentally disturbed, struggled through much of her life lonely and bedridden. A critic said of Frida, "It is impossible to separate the life and work of this extraordinary person. Her paintings are her biography."
Frida Kahlo has many followers, is highly respected and fans duplicate her art in all forms - paintings, jewelry, shrines, clothing, etc.
