2009-07 Danita Art
{ images/ danita art }

did you know that frida kahlo contracted polio when she was six years old? it left her left leg thinner than her right. and that is why she always wore long colorful skirts – to hide her legs. and why was more than a third of her work comprised of self-portraits? in her words: “I paint myself because I am often alone and I am the subject I know best.”

psst! danita art also makes gorgeous frida dolls – you can find them in her shop and on her blog….
