Frida Kahlo

The face of Frida Kahlo will be familiar to anyone who had the pleasure of taking Martha Green's workshop at the CQI Retreat this year.  Some of the recurring images we saw and worked with during the workshop were of this Mexican born artist.  I have to admit to being ignorant of Frida Kahlo and so wanted to share some of what I found out with you.

A short biograph can be read on this website.  If you are like me, what you read will intrigue you to discover more about this artist and feminist.  I can certainly see why Martha finds her such an inspiration!

You can probably rent the old 2002 movie 'Frida' with Selma Hayek. It's a good one!

Yes indeed she was an INCREDIBLY FASCINATING woman. Popping over form Blogtoberfest.
