Art by Izzy Canning

Hello! I'm Isabel and I'm the face behind @art_byizzycanning, where I make empowering nude art. I’m also an actor, and before the pandemic I made my theatre debut as cover Fanny Brice in Funny Girl at the Theatre Marigny in Paris. During lockdown I discovered a little hobby and a newfound love for painting - specifically in the area of nude art. Like so many people (especially in the performance world), my relationship with my own body and the way I look and feel in myself has been an ongoing journey. But finding nude art has had a massively positive impact on me, and I'm incredibly passionate about people being kind to their bodies and feeling confident in their skin. In my work, I paint bodies of all shapes and sizes, using bright colours to capture the beautiful shapes, lines and features we’ve been told are ‘imperfections’. It is my hope that everyone sees themselves represented in my art (I paint men too!) and that it helps people to embrace their bodies a little more, exactly as they are. ️ Find me on Instagram at @art_byizzycanning - come say hello and be a part of the wonderful community! You can buy prints of my art as well as bookmarks, tote bags and ornaments on Etsy at ‘ArtByIzzyStore’, and I also sell on Fy! Commissions are also available, so send me a message or email to find out more. Thank you!

The bag is hanging on a tree and set against a background of grass and trees.]
