I've been reading about Frida Kahlo recently - I've been fascinated by her paintings for along time, but I've only just found out about her life.
She was Mexican, born in 1907 just before the revolution. She painted many self portraits. She had polio and spina bifida as a child and at the age if 18 was involved in an horrific road accident which left her with multiple injuries. She took up painting whilst in hospital.
If you want to find out any more, or see some of her paintings, have a look at www.tendreams.org/kahlo.htm and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frida_Kahlo.Hope you like my tribute pieces anyway! The picture is the size of an ATC, the basis was a stamp by Invoke Arts (funky houses). I just got carried away and added more to it!
The face and the wings on the doll were printed onto fabric. The flowers are made of paper.
