I Am a Work of Art: Illustrated Affirmations

Illustrated affirmation cards for BIPOC Women to inspire creativity, self care and self love. Handmade with love.


Illustrated affirmations to inspire. Affirmations have the power to change your mindset and help you empower yourself by providing positive reinforcement and rewriting your internal monologue. Words hold a lot of weight. Especially the ones that we speak to ourselves. Affirmation cards are an easy way to visualize these affirmations and take them with you on your day-to-day.

I Am a Work of Art Affirmation cards are a collection of 12 illustrated affirmations designed by a Black woman. They were created to promote self-love and celebration amongst BIWoC. They are a distinct and thoughtful gift for yourself or anyone who needs to be reminded that they are strong, special, and deserve to be celebrated.

Usage Tips
