frida

Frida, Diego and a Frida quote — pieces of an unfinished, failed project I worked on earlier this year. Diego measures just under 20cm tall, the tallest of the three. This project didn't reach it's intended outcome however it's failings taught me persistence in my creative pursuits. These three now act as a reminder to myself to stay strong and to believe in myself.


" I leave you my portrait so that you will have my presence all the days and all the nights that I am away from you. "

Frida Kahlo

Failed project - piffle - I love them! The words resonate too, I hand stitched a piece for my parents last year after my brother died "For all the things you'll no longer do
And the things you'll no longer see
I will carry you always with me
And we will go there together" words by me.
