Body Dysmorphic Tales

My name is Courtney but my artist name is ‘ConaStoe.’ I’m a student and interdisciplinary artist, currently, interning for SPREAD.

As an artist, I love to create different types of designs. Take ‘Body Dysmorphic Tales,’ for example. BDT is a series of artwork, I’ve created for women of color, to raise awareness on body dysmorphia and self-esteem issues. The painting entitled, ‘Move ya Body,’ (shown below) highlights being comfortable in all of our uniquely-shaped bodies.

Being comfortable, in our bodies, is a challenge I think all black women face at one point or another. This piece was painted in celebration of who we are and embracing our imperfections.

We all need to take a moment and look at ourselves. Upon this inspection, I’m sure we’ll realize how beautiful we all really are.
