Antonia Jolley
BA (Hons) Fine Art // De Montfort University ’20

“I am a painter specialising in watercolour, based within the Midlands. In 2020, I graduated from De Montfort University with a First Class Honours Degree in Fine Art. AND I’M ON A MISSION! My goal is to empower as many people to feel totally confident within themselves. I’m sick of the photoshopped, heavily facetuned influencer culture and I want us to see some REAL BODIES! My confidence has been challenged massively through social media and I think its about time we all thought better about ourselves and how unique we are. So I’m painting torsos! I want scars, stretch marks, wrinkles, dad bods and saggy boobs to be normalised. I’m also getting to see some pretty incredible tattoos and piercings! I’m all about empowerment, education and appreciation rather than sexualisation, judgement or editing a highlight reel!”
