If you need a little reminder that you're a bad*ss woman, who doesn't need to meet any expectations but your own, you're going to absolutely love artist Joanna Thangiah's work.
Thangiah creates pastel-colored illustrations that feature women of different body types coupled with feminist, body positive inspirational quotes. Her colorful works serve as a reminder to all that confidence comes from within.
"I initially started illustrating whilst I was in recovery from an eating disorder, as a way to help me love and accept my body, as well as help me deal with being diagnosed with a string of mental illnesses," Thangiah told Bustle. "I was also in a turbulent relationship, which made me feel worthless and powerless. Drawing was the only thing that made me feel better about my situation, and it did give me the power to finally escape."
Now, she uses her illustrations to empower other women by sharing them on her Instagram.
