About Kelsie Tyson

My work is for anyone who has ever had to rationalize whether or not they deserve to eat. Many times in my life I have denied myself food for fear of my own fatness-other times I was just too broke to afford food.

I have chosen to no longer live in fear of my belly, but in admiration; and I have found that the most fearless thing a fat woman can do is eat.

I choose to elevate fatness in the effort to inspire others to celebrate, feel, feed and take care of themselves.

Biography

I am a multimedia artist focusing on body liberation, sexuality, and vulnerability in the grips of growing up poor in rural appalachia.
