I was in the studio working on a large painting today. Having resolved to do a postcard painting since it has already been a week since my last post, I looked around for inspiration. I spied Frida on a bag that I had used to carry in some supplies. Then I used my fancy smart phone to look up some reference images. I used details from two sources—a photo of Kahlo and one of her self portraits. This illustration also looks a bit like my sister Shannon, but that was not intentional. Gouache, 6" x 8"
I am an artist living and working in Minneapolis, MN. I studied illustration at the Savannah College of Art and Design. I do a little freelance illustration and also sell my work from my studio and at art fairs. I work part time as a graphic designer as well.
My husband, son, and I live in the Longfellow neighborhood.
