I have to say that I'm a huge fan of Frida Kahlo, here paintings are so colourful, and expressive.
But here life was very hard, at the age of 19 she had an accident which caused pain her whole life. But she was very strong and lerned to deal with it. I admire her for her belief in life and her are real inspirating. I also love the film "Frida" starring Salma Hayek. You can take a look at her homepage, it has a magnificent design.
And, always remember her motto "Viva la vida!"
