Patron Saint

One of my favourite artists was born today. Her life was such a gift, particularly to an artist like myself. Frida Kahlo created incredible art not merely with her celebrated self portraits but also with the manner in which she walked this earth. She designed her life on her terms. Through her now famous bohemian style as well as activism, she honored her indigenous country folk. She overcame physical conditions that suggested she would be barren and birthed an amazing legacy. She embraced colour and creativity as means towards healing. She loved passionately. In so many ways Frida Kahlo has been an inspiration to me.
