From the Author

More to Love is dedicated to every woman who has ever felt she was less, when she truly is more.

About the Author

During her career as a high school art teacher, Elizabeth Patch overheard hundreds upon hundreds of girls talk about hating their bodies, and watched in vain as a favorite student died from anorexia. Her illustrations and writings evolved from sketchbooks she kept while struggling with her own eating disorders. Elizabeth is committed to creating positive, fun images that reflect a diversity of body types. Elizabeth Patch has a BA in Drawing, an MA in Painting, and post-graduate studies in Digital Media. She is married with 2 children, 3 step-children and a big orange cat. When Elizabeth is not making art, you might find her practicing yoga, sewing, knitting, or chasing animals out of her garden.

Common culture has strayed so far from reality with its ideal woman. Show all the women you love that they are beautiful just as the are. It is truly the heart and soul that creates beauty. You ARE beautiful

More to Love, by Elizabeth Patch, is a BEAUTIFUL book.

Each paragraph contains an outstanding life-message. The illustrations are beautiful and inspiring and should be hanging in museums as a tribute to well-rounded women everywhere.

I hope we see much, much more from Elizabeth Patch.

I've read a lot of books on the topic of body image and self esteem for plus-size women. Some are angry, some are funny, some study the topic in detail with lots of statistics and footnotes, some give techniques for visualizing a new body, other give techniques for dissolving the very real pain that comes with being fat in a thin-centric society, and many are stories about "How I learned to love myself even though I had a miserably unhappy childhood as a fat girl". This book,however, is quite different in 2 ways. First, the writing is short, sweet and to the point. Who can beat a line like "Fat is not a word that fits me"? And second, the illustrations are just adorable! A great gift book for any woman on your list who could use a smile.

Too much these days all we see are women who look like as my husband say; "She should eat a sandwich." Forced with these images in our heads everywhere we look it's impossible to look in the mirror and not feel huge, even when we are not, I'm a size 14, this book lets us forgive and enjoy ourselves for who we are.

It creates a positive image for women who've not worn a size 2 since they were 2! It's inspiring and joyful and must have for any woman who thinks they are not attractive just because they are not a single digit size.

Elizabeth Patch and her book "More to Love" is a fantastic tool for parents and teachers and to share far and wide to help improve girls and women self esteem and overall perception of body image. In the 21st century it is more important than ever for girls and women to be empowered in regards to body image and what is healthy and to understand what is most important is to be healthy no matter what size or shape one's body is. Wonderful and kudos to Elizabeth for this book that is making a big difference internationally!
