The Many Fridas of Mirlette Islas

Mirlette Islas is the proud mommy of 3 little princesses (2 precious girls and one funny Chihuahua). Her charming work is influenced by her childhood. She has been painting and crafting since she was a young girl. When Mirlette moved to the United States with her husband and child, art-making became a way to soothe the aches of missing the homeland and culture she left behind. Much of her work pays homage to La Virgen de Guadalupe and Frida Kahlo.
