Happy Birthday, Frida!

 In homage to this grand diva, I wanted to post a few images of this memorable icon. In a time where women were encouraged to be nothing more than ornaments. Frida not only spearheaded her personal and political views but became one of the most memorable women in history. Throughout her ongoing health battles and heartache, she took you on a journey which reflected in her art. 


 This unabashed openness allowed you to catch a glimpse of a woman that beguiled you. Even though you could clearly see her pain and suffering, you never pitied her.  This fearlessness empowered the honesty she laid though her paint brush.

Frida's life continues to inspire, intrigue and influence society in art and fashion. Here are just a few examples...
