A bit about me, Nomi Dekel, the creator and owner of VoluptuArt.
I grew up surrounded by artists and entrepreneurs and began to realize this taught me to use art and the creative process as a way of making sense of what was going on in and around me. Art and the creative process became one of my languages – tools for navigating life. This naturally led to using art to heal my experience of negative body image. I surrounded myself with artwork of positive images of the female body and found this process to be powerful. I was shifting my negative view of what I saw in the mirror as I took in positive modeling of larger bodies as beautiful and sensual. It was a new, supportive and self-respecting view of me, even beyond my body size and shape. In my 30 years as a licensed psychotherapist practicing in San Francisco, California, I integrated the use of body positive art and poetry as tools for healing into my Celebrate Your Body Offerings.
When I first started searching for body positive art, I mostly found the classics, images of women not quite of our era and more current/modern art tended to offer images that portray women as unhappy and cold. It became clear to me there was need for a space that offered a more diverse collection of body image art and to make this type of artwork accessible to a wide audience. I realized I could combine my creative expression as an entrepreneur with my love of art into launching VoluptuArt.
