About The Event

Frida painting by one of my amazing art students- Jan Daniels

Frida Kahlo is a Mexican Artist. Her auto-biographical paintings were before their time. She is one of the most adored artists of our century. Her art and life story influenced generations of artists.

When she was young she was in a bus/Tram accident that defined her life and art. Whilst recovering from her injuries (which caused her to be bed ridden), she began to paint. 

She was married to a famous Mexican Mural artist called Diego Rivera and is best known for her self portraits.


Today she is a national treasure in Mexico, an icon throughout the world and one of my favourite artists.

Your portrait may not be a realistic portrayal of Frida, but it could morph into looking like Frida’s sister, aunty, mother, nana, younger Frida, older Frida etc. 

In the end it doesn’t matter as long as you have enjoyed the process and experience and someone might say “Hey that artwork reminds me of that famous Mexican artist Frida Kahlo”.
