3 Life Lessons from Frida Kahlo


For anyone from all walks of life that ever felt different or out of place, you may have found the art and life of Frida Kahlo fascinating and moving.
We remember her strength, tenacity, and resilient spirit. Against all odds, and bumps in the road she persevered. Her style and outlook on life was incredibly ahead of her time.  For decades now, Frida lives on through her art and has influenced so many creative souls, including mine. So in an effort to pay homage to her, I sought the help of Kuya Jep Photography and we set out to capture the spirit of Frida to share with a new generation.

Frida Kahlo had the courage to lay everything out on canvas, the good and the unsavory moments. She was unafraid to completely exposed her true self, and would not yield to the acceptable social norms.
To this day Frida continues to inspire us to push our creativity and follow the beat of our own drum.

1. In art there are no right or wrongs
