Hi! I founded the group in 2005 as a way to unite women from different backgrounds to celebrate art and culture. The one thing we have in common is that we all are inspired by one way or another by Frida Kahlo. I am inspired by the way Frida was very independent and no matter what her situation or obstacle, she always found a way to do what she loved – creating art. In addition to her paintings, she was also an avid crafter.
Here are my other sites!
I’m a hard workin’ mamacita. I juggle my family along with a full-time art and writing career.
I’ve been married to my best friend, Patrick, for 20 years. We have two super sweet, talented and creative kids. I want to be remembered for positive actions. I want to prove that you can have non-traditional “dreamer” goals and actually achieve them through hard work.
I spent years as an entertainment newspaper reporter and craft columnist for The Arizona Republic. I have seven published craft books, including: CRAFTY CHICA’S GUIDE TO ARTFUL SEWING: FABU-LOW-SEW IDEAS FOR THE EVERYDAY CRAFTER (Potter Craft/Random House).
