Frida Kahlo is an icon and muse that I return to again and again. I am infused by Frida and I consider myself a Kahloist. She epitomizes the artist and woman in pain.

I was in that deep depression that is the unfortunate but necessary part of the infidelity legacy/divorce journey. It’s universal. Child-Frida was a light to help me process through and to lift me out of the hole.
