ALL BODIES ARE NORMAL
In the Normal Bodies book, you’ll find 100 paintings and 100 soul-shakingly powerful stories.
We believe that all bodies are normal and we're proving that one painting at a time.
THE NORMAL BODIES BOOK IS OUT NOW
The Normal Bodies project combines beautiful, hand-crafted watercolour portraits with raw, honest captions from the people in the paintings.
This book has been created as a stepping stone towards body neutrality and as a beautiful reminder that all bodies are normal.
Our first book is now available to order for shipping in the UK and internationally. Sign up to our mailing list to receive updates and news about the Normal Bodies book and other items coming soon.

all bodies are normal
The Normal Bodies project was started by Sophie and Cecy in 2018. After decades of living with body shame we decided it was time to fight back and prove once and for all that there's no right or wrong way to have a body.
Since our launch, we’ve painted people from every inhabited continent on Earth. We're showing that all bodies are normal one painting at a time.
