Frida Kahlo is in full bloom!
Frida inspired artwork has been a popular trend lately with many purchasing totes, bedding, posters, t-shirts and phone cases that all capture the essence of the flower-crown queen. Vicki Rawlins is the latest artist to portray the Mexican painter in her artwork where she creates portraits of Frida solely out of flowers. Vicki owns an online shop, along with her daughter, named Sister Golden, which sells personal handcrafted pieces as well as a "thoughtfully curated collection of one-of-a-kind pieces from independent artists from across the world." All of these portraits are made strictly with natural ingredients and are not attached to the surface in any manner so Vicki and her daughter, Brooke, photograph the ephemeral portraits and sell them as prints and in calendars.
