Based in Australia, Joanna creates artwork focusing on feminism, mental health and “fragments of her inner monologue”. Her art is often a powerful commentary on social and cultural issues, so expect to see a whole lot of body lovin’ goodness and feminist warrior activism – with a sprinkle of sass thrown in for good measure.

Joy by name, and Joy by nature. In an image-obsessed world, Amanda’s ceramic mugs, jewellery and other nick-nacks feature voluptuous and chubby caricatures of women.

Shae DeTar is an NYC based photographer and artist. Her most recent collection of emotive photographs aim to present women whose body shape falls outside of ‘social acceptance’. Not only does she celebrate women together, but she combines these images with beautiful scenery to connect the body with nature. Frankly, her photographs are awe-inspiring.
