Author & illustrator on the topic of body image and self-esteem. I create positive art for the plus-size majority!

Background Information

According to recent statistics,
62% of American women are "not skinny"...

And almost all of us have either tried to lose weight, are currently trying to lose weight, or struggle with issues of self-esteem related to body image/body size. And yet, there are still very few positive images in popular culture of average and plus-size women.
Shortly after one of my high school art students died from anorexia, characters began appearing in in my sketchbooks: happy, funny, sassy, sexy full-figured gals going through life at full force! Captions, poems, and little stories popped into my mind and begged to be illustrated. Drawing, coloring and writing became my way of coping with the senseless loss of my student, and, surprisingly, acted as a healing for my own issues with body image, eating disorders and self-esteem.
There are many great books that deal with these issues from an informational or therapeutic standpoint, as well as memoirs, novels, and workbooks. More to Love does not take their place. Instead it is designed to be a quick pick me up: short, happy bites of positive imagery and writings, a little "chocolate chip cookie for your soul" for those moments when you need a reminder of how wonderful you truly are.
