Frida Kahlo.

As an artist, I've always respected Frida Kahlo. When a friend asked me to create a bright and colorful Frida with some glitter thrown in, I couldn't wait. With this piece in particular, I had such a clear image in my mind before I made it so when it came time to putting that idea into motion, it made the process very enjoyable. Matt added the glitter, but I'm so happy with how this turned out.

I didn't know until afterwards that the reason my friend had me do Frida is because through all of the tough times and hard work, Frida never gave up and pushed on to do what she needed to do. Frida, to her, was a symbol of strength and endurance.

She told me she doesn't have any art in her apartment and she wanted to change that. I'm really happy that one of the first pieces to grace her home is this one.
