Blessed. Warrior. Loved. Powerful.

These are some of the affirmations shown on a screen printed graphic tee shirt, now available at Lane Bryant.

The clothing company worked with Columbus artist April Sunami to feature her positive messages of the power of women. Wearing this shirt will “put your love of art and diversity on display.”

“This is the only T-shirt I’ve ever designed,” says Sunami, who presented several different ideas to Lane Bryant.

Heather McGarry from Lane Bryant’s parent company had reached out to Sunami over the summer through Instagram to inquire about the project.

The tee features a longer length, so you can wear over leggings for a cozy and casual look. Or, dress it up with a blazer and jeans.

What else does Sunami have in the works?

“I’m currently working on an album cover for a friend (this will be my fourth) and a book cover for a beloved poet.”

The Affirmations Artist Tee is now available online for $39.95.
