Plus Size Art: Get to Know the Work and Plus Size Illustrations of Shelby Bergen!

If you are looking for the cutest plus size illustrations to buy or an artist who features plus size art, to support, then meet Shelby Bergen!

It has been a while since we have featured the latest in plus size art. In the past, we have featured plus size superheroes, fat mermaids, and high fashion. Sometimes, we shine the light on the artist whose focus is the plus size body. Whether via Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook, unearthing great talent is always so exciting! Such is the case of our twitter find, Shelby Bergen!

We happened to be scrolling through Twitter when a few pieces was shared onto our timeline and immediately, we had to see and learn more about Shelby!

Let us share a little bit about this Minneapolis based artist! Shelby is an illustrator who features “bright colors, patterns and shapes” in her illustrations. What we appreciate about Shelby’s work is the diverse range of bodies, shapes, and lifestyles that she creates! Armed with her Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Illustration, Shelby gives us work that makes us smile and today we share a few favorite pieces!

Are you ready?

Do you see what we mean? Her work is such a joy! It is hard to just choose one favorite, right?

We had the chance to connect with Shelby and ask her about her work:

“The reason I do what I do has morphed and changed over the years. It all started with me being knee-deep in the body positive movement and wanting to learn to draw people that looked like me.

Now, I get messages about how people see themselves in my work and how my work makes them feel like they’re not alone in facing the world in the body they have.”

It is important for us to shine the light on those who fashion plus size art, because it is important to see ourselves. To see and celebrate our bodies. To take part in the various arts!

You can learn more about and commission her work at ShelbyBergen.com

Make sure you give her a follow on Twitter, @ShleboBergen and on Instagram, @shelby.bergen!
