The Mexican painter Frida Kahlo was born on July 6, 1907. Her highly personal paintings were often associated with the surrealist art movement. She paved the way for generations of female artists by expressing the beauty and the pain in her life from a distinctly female perspective.
I'm a mixed media artist living in the Southwestern United States. When I'm not in my studio I like to spend time outside observing the goings on of the bugs and birds and the passing clouds. The intricate balance between humans and the natural world is an ongoing theme in my artwork. I try to walk lightly on the earth.
