Frida Kahlo Self-Portraits Frida Kahlo was born in

Frida Kahlo Self-Portraits Frida Kahlo was born in Coyoacan, Mexico in 1907. Her father was an artist, and he

taught Frida how to paint when she was a little girl. When she was 7 years old, she was stricken with polio and had to stay in bed for 9 months! Thats when Frida taught herself how to draw. Drawing saves her

from being sad. When Frida was only 18 years old, she was in a terrible bus accident which left her in constant pain for the rest of her life. The Accident, 17 September 1926

After the accident, Frida found the courage to live by painting. She painted the things that were important to her - special days,

dreams, and the world of her imagination. When she was in pain and couldnt leave her bed, she painted in bed. Frida painted lots of

pictures of herself. She often used vivid colors in

honor of native Mexican culture. Sometimes, she would put her favorite pet monkey or dog in her paintings with her!
