now until june 1

become a bloomingbody

It makes my heart so incredibly happy when people approach my work and say:

 

“Oh! that looks like my body! These look like real bodies.”

 

We are so overwhelmed with unrealistic beauty ideals and toxic messaging about what we should look like that it surprises us to see “real bodies” celebrated in all their unique beauty.

 

That’s why I’m calling on you to become part of the solution and share your unique blooming beauty with the world! (and get yourself a gorgeous piece of art for your home at the same time.)

 

Submit your images to become a BLOOMINGBODY model by June 1 and get 50% off a hand-embellished print & 40% off the price of the original painting

 

... lend me your badassery and let’s SHARE it with the world!

Commission FAQs

What's the difference between commissioning a "flash" piece and a "custom" piece? Flash pieces are ones I've already sketched and just haven't gotten around to making into an actual painting. Custom pieces are ones we'll work on together, using reference photos you provide (of yourself, typically) to create a genuinely unique and gorgeous piece that celebrates your unique and gorgeous self!

What if I don't have reference photos? We can still work together! Choose one of the pre-sketched flash pieces, or if you really want to indulge yourself, I know a wonderful photographer I can hook you up with.

What if I want a fully FULLY custom piece and not one from the FruitingBody or BloomingBody series? I'm always happy to discuss options on other projects! You can email me directly at kendraschellenberg@gmail.com and let's chat about that piece of art you're dreaming of.

Why do you require a deposit? As soon as you click that "save my spot" button, I'm jumping to work to make sure you're happy with your commission piece. The deposit covers all the pre-painting labour involved in commissions, and makes sure I can purchase the supplies needed to complete the project.

About

fruitingBodies

I started drawing FruitingBodies as a way of unknotting the negative mentality I had towards my own body. I wanted my work to celebrate feminine bodies in a way that I wasn’t seeing out in the world.

 

I wanted this work to say, “Fuck you, for trying to make me hate myself. I am a fucking vision and I am powerful.”

About
BloomingBodies

BloomingBodies is a series of inky figurative paintings celebrating the grounded self - a body settled in the understanding of its own strength and unique beauty.

Like a love-letter to the self, these paintings honour the power of the feminine, and celebrate moments of spiritual growth and self-acceptance.
