Announcement   Let Frida be your muse...

Plumage by PaddyK designs and creates a line of fine fashion and home accessories, inspired by artists and their art.

Frida Kahlo (1907-1954) was a Mexican artist who is recognized for her personal appearance as much as her artwork.

From Wikipedia:

Frida Kahlo de Rivera; born Magdalena Carmen Frida Kahlo y Calderón; July 6, 1907 – July 13, 1954) was a Mexican painter, who mostly painted self-portraits. Inspired by Mexican popular culture, she employed a naïve folk art style to explore questions of identity, postcolonialism, gender, class, and race in Mexican society. Her paintings often had strong autobiographical elements and mixed realism with fantasy. In addition to belonging to the post revolutionary Mexicanidad movement, which sought to define a Mexican identity, Kahlo has been described as a Surrealist or magical realist. Her work has been celebrated internationally as emblematic of Mexican national and indigenous traditions, and by feminists for what is seen as its uncompromising depiction of the female experience and form.[1]

Designer's Bio:

Patricia Richardson (Paddy) is a Canadian textile artist, born in the Niagara Peninsula. Interspersed between her studies in fashion design, fabric design, embroidery and arts education at various institutions such as The Academy, the Royal Conservatory of Music, Sheridan and Fanshawe Colleges, and Western University, she pursued a career as a costume designer and maker. In this field she practised and developed a wide variety of artistic textile techniques. After many years in this area, Patricia sustained a spinal injury and was told by her Doctor to stop practising the heavy costume work she had been doing daily and to "...work on nothing heavier than a hat". Taking him literally, she undertook the Millinery Certificate programme at George Brown College. Patricia now produces fashion and home accessories. Using her own patterns and designs, she dyes and paints the fabrics, cuts and manipulates them into shape and combines them with techniques such as embroidery and beading into unique art pieces.

Patricia holds a BA, and is a Certified Artist/Educator as well as a Certified Milliner. She teaches and has published articles about embellishment and design.
