Frida ATC's

I swapped these ATC's I made with Micki in the UK!! I'm excited to get to send something overseas. The theme was based on Frida Kahlo. I've been an admirer of Frida Kahlo and Remedios Varo's artwork forever so it was fun to use Frida as an inspiration. I've included photos of the original inspirations for the cards. I just wanted to show how what inspires me doesn't always translate directly to the final product and of course there is my own artistic bend that comes through. I found for this endeavor that I had a difficult time making Frida look as masculine, as she can, so my cards have a more rounded, feminine look to them.


  1. I just ordered for my daughter's education: Smart About Art: Frida Kahlo. My daughter and I like these colourful bio's as well as your cards.
    Nice pictures!

  2. Thanks Paula! I haven't heard of 'Smart about Art', I'm going to have to check that out!
