She is a twenty-four-year-old and has been drawing all her life. Wyethe said, "I come from a family of illustrators, so you could say it’s in my blood!
I am currently in art school, specifically at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design. My area of study is illustration and communication design,"
She started drawing Disney princesses with fuller figures
Her first recreated princess was Cinderella
Wyethe's little changes to the Disney characters made women more aware of how much culture influenced their perception of what a woman's body should look like:
"I started with Cinderella, and once I had her drawn, I had an unexpected emotional response."
"Like many people, I have struggled with self-image and disordered eating, probably from as early as 10 years old. I have been using my art to learn to love my body just the way it is.
I started with Cinderella, and once I had her drawn, I had an unexpected emotional response. I felt this sense of comfort and she felt so real to me.
It would have made a huge impact on me as a young girl to see Cinderella with a proportionate waist and fuller arms!" said Wyethe.
After her recreation of Cinderella gained so much attention, she continued drawing other Disney princesses.
Next in line was Sleeping Beauty
Then people asked her to draw Jasmine,
and she did.
Her slight alterations really make Disney's princess more gorgeous than she already is.
Then it was Ariel's turn
She illustrated a couple of Ariel's photos for her fans.
And it turned out awesome!
Here's the version of princess Tiana:
"When only one body type is accepted as the norm, we pick out the special qualities that make us all different and we start to look negatively upon them. Including variation in body representation — it is [essential] to healing inner self-image," Wyethe said.
"Having this representation can hopefully begin to heal our inner child," said Wyethe.
Just a little modification and the characters look so much more realistic.
Belle And Adam:
"I was going to say something about plus size representation, but honestly this is just an average size! Disney just makes us feel like the medium is large," someone commented.
