The female body has always fascinated Boyarde and the stigmas attached to gender empowerment, in particular ‘Scopophilia’: “the pleasure of gazing at the female form”.
Her own personal journey of female empowerment began when she found a beautiful village called Placencia, in Belize. Working alongside the local women, she aimed break down the stigmas associated with nudity and objectification of the female form, through body painting. Check out the fabulous images below.
Boyarde still works at inspiring women to bring out their “inner goddess’” through her accessory painting. Whether it be a diva or her classic lips Boyarde’s work remains on the safe side of naughty.
