The belly art project

Julie Hassett had the privilege of working on Sara Blakely 's (the founder of Spanx and the Sara Blakely Foundation) book, "The Belly Art Project" for 2 years, flying internationally and all over the United States to body paint belly art designs on expectant mothers. The images below are of only a handful of the 50+ bellies that Julie painted. This project supports Christy Turlington-Burns' foundation, "Every Mother Counts."
