Frida Came Home

I met Bronwyn Schuster at one of the Gorilla House Battles.  Take a look at her portfolio, using the link provided, to be convinced of this young woman’s talent and unique way of viewing the world.  When I saw her Frida Kahlo piece, I was convinced that she was made for me and now she has found her way home, with Joane Cardinal Schubert’s piece based on dreams in a sweat lodge beside her and my own piece of art-furniture based on Chagall’s stained glass window, Zebulon, a beautiful piece that connects with the energy of water, below her.

P1080798P1080802P1080799I am really pleased with this new piece of art and will cherish it always.  I have learned much from reading The Diary of Frida Kahlo: An Intimate Self-Portrait by Carlos Fuentes and viewing her art in books and in life.

A warning to my readers/viewers, Frida suffered significant pain throughout her life…physical, as well as emotional.  She used her art in a very honest way to express and live out this journey as a woman.  If you have difficulties with very sensitive content, you may not wish to view her biography.  However, if you wish to become both inspired and knowledgeable, this is an amazing archive of her life and her life’s work.
