He also taught her Some art basics like drawing and copy printing.
As a teen, Frida was involved in a street car accident where a metal pole traversed her pelvis. Because of this accident she spent months laying bed and was unable to have children in the future. In order to recuperate, she had to go through 35 operations. Later on she met Diego Rivera at the age of 21. They quickly fell in love and married a year after. Their love was passionate yet also stormy. Mainly for Frida because of the affair Diego had with her sister. They divorced in 1939, but then remarried a year after.

Frida Kahlo was originally born in Coyoacan Mexico, at her parents house. Also known as la casa azul (the blue house.) During this time it was a small town on the outskirts of Mexico city. The towns name Coyoacan, came from the word nahuati which mainly means "place of the coyotes."
Frida's father Gillermo was he first person to influence her. He was a professional photographer by trade and also an amateur painter. He taught Frida how to use the camera and how to retouch and color photographs. While Frida was recovering from the bus accident, her father gave her his box of paints and brushes and encouraged her to become an artist her self.
