Frida Kahlo was born July 6 1907 in Coyoacan, Mexico. She had an early interest in art. 1925 happened to her in a serious car accident and was bedridden, the accident caused permanent spinal and uterus that would cause severe periodic pain throughout their lives. While bedridden after the accident, Frida began to paint for real. Her art was a reflection of how she was feeling, she portrayed her own life story in her paintings
