Empowering Illustrations Celebrate the Beauty of Blackness in Full Bloom

Black Girl Floral Art Prints in Full Bloom

Shae, the Atlanta-based illustrator behind She Is This, is a Black female artist who seeks to empower women of color through her lively digital illustrations. Celebrating the beauty of skin in every shade of brown and hair in every color and texture, her art features Black girls and women wearing a variety of hairstyles and fashions that express who they are. Their eyes are usually closed as if at peace, shutting out all the negativity the world can throw their way.

In one series, colorful flowers bloom and burst onto the page in lush and beautiful compositions. The stylized florals envelop each subject, sometimes emerging from the most unlikely places. A symbol of growth and beauty, the flowers are an outer reflection of the inner landscape that can flourish within us as we embrace who we are and face the world unapologetically.

“I started She Is This as a way to inspire women of color and beyond—young and old—to not just embrace their skin, but celebrate it and everything it comes with,” Shae explains. “I hope you can see yourself in one of my illustrations and know that every bit of that shade of brown you're wearing is perfection.”
