Look into the life of Frida:

She started gaining attention for

 her beautiful paintings

The University of Mexico invited Frida to put her paintings in a group exhibit. There, someone from a gallery in New York saw Frida’s paintings. He asked Frida if he could include some of her paintings in an exhibit in New York. Frida started painting right away!

Frida used art to express herself

 from a young age

When Frida was 18 years old, she was seriously hurt and almost died in a bad bus accident. The accident put her in bed for months. She started drawing colorful butterflies on her cast. Later, her parents gave her a special easel and put a mirror over her head. She started painting self-portraits (paintings of herself).

She earned her place as one of the most important painters in history

Frida's example has helped women focus on their own careers and talents. Her personality and desire to tell her story through art has inspired many other women (and men) to do the same in their own ways.

Frida always stayed true to 

herself and her art

In 1938, Frida’s art was part of an exhibit in New York City. It was one of the first times any Mexican artist—male or female—had been offered an exhibit outside of Mexico! She did not change her views, her art, or her traditional Mexican clothes to fit in with New Yorkers. Half of Frida’s paintings sold at the New York show!
