and here she is painting.
As well as being an amazing writer and painter she had the most fascinating life (she died in 2011 at the age of 94). She was born in England but spent most of her life in Mexico. She had an affair with Max Ernst when she was 19 and he was in his 40s, she spent time in an asylum in Madrid and was rescued from there by her nanny who arrived in a submarine. She later married Emericko Weisz and had two sons. Her work (the art and writing) is filled with animals, folkore, magick and surrealism.
What do you think? I am completely in love....
