Body Positivity
Through Life Drawing

In society today we are conditioned to recognise what a ‘perfect body’ looks like. We are made to feel that body weight determines our worth and we’re made to believe that if we’re above the average dress size, then it’s not acceptable to wear certain types of clothing…

We want change

We want women to see they are beautiful regardless of their size and we want women to know that there is no wrong way to have a body.

Life Drawing

'Body positivity is about feeling comfortable in yourself regardless of who you are. As somebody who has done a lot of life drawing over the years, I've worked with people of all shapes and sizes. When you get in a life drawing situation, actually you drop all preconceptions that you have as your out in the world and you're down to the basics of who you are in the space, how you occupy the space and how you relate to somebody who is looking at you objectively.'
