Self Portrait - by Elizabeth Shanahan Artist statement: We've all heard by now about body positivity, we've all heard that people come in all shapes and sizes, and we've all heard someone say, at some point, that every body is beautiful. But being positive about an unconventional body is easier said than done. This is my way of upping the ante. I choose to display this unconventional body as a thing of beauty, and in doing so I hope I can encourage others to do the same.
