Frida Querida Illustration

My tribute to an amazing artist and passionate woman, Frida Kahlo, who transformed her suffering into colorful pieces of art. (July 6, 1907 – July 13, 1954)

My original illustration was made using colored pencils and digital painting. Signed art prints are available through my Etsy shop on both giclee prints or high quality photo paper.
