Frida by Danita

Frida has a very strong influence over my work, her unbreakable spirit and her powerful presence haunts my art, and whenever I depict her in one of my original paintings or handmade mixed media art dolls,always dressed in bright colors and Mexican themed imagery.

Rather of just reinterpreting her art, I invite her to come into my surreal and whimsical worlds, where I depict Frida on my mixed media portraits and art dolls doing the everyday things she likes doing in my world.

When I paint her, I imagine she poses for me, letting me capture her amazing spirit one painting or art doll at a time.
