Hi, I'm Libby Tozer.

She Is Seen Founder, writer, flower farmer and photographer.

Like you I'm a "normal" person - scars (both emotional and physical), I've got plenty of lumps bumps and stories to tell. I love to support people to share their stories, own everything that they are and completely shift the narratives that run circles in our minds. I live on Ngarrindjeri Ruwi on a little flower farm with my family. I'm on a mission to share stories and shift bucket loads of shame so we can learn, advocate and rise together.

I do this because it’s important to me that you feel seen, and that in being seen, you feel safe. Safe enough to dance in a crowded room, safe enough to trust your gut, to know when it is right and know when it’s wrong. It’s important to me that you know your worth, so you feel safe to say ‘YES’ when you want to, and perhaps more so ‘NO’ when you need to. It’s important to me that being seen means there’s no need to hide any part of who you are, there is no need to say ‘Yes’ to make anyone comfortable or to say ‘No’ in case you upset someone. You a multi-dimensional being and when you are truly seen – you are beyond powerful and She Is Seen is here to help you step into all that you are.

She has the power to drop a ripple of hope in a pond that changes the world, for not only one, but the many who will walk along the road she once travelled long after she is gone. So whilst being seen may on the surface seem superficial it’s anything but.

 

Libby Tozer is a photographer, writer, founder of the She Is Seen Movement. She lives, works, and surfs on Ngarrindjeri and Kaurna Country on the Fleurieu Peninsula of SA where she is also raising her daughter.

Libby founded the She Is Seen Movement in 2018. The self-acceptance movement has become a life changing social enterprise with a focus of shifting perceptions about body image and shifting shame by sharing women’s stories that often go unspoken.

Since founding She Is Seen, Libby has photographed well over 500 women, had her work exhibited in numerous art exhibitions, her books and calendars have been sold throughout Australia, Canada, the U.K and U.S.A.

Libby has been awarded numerous grants from the Alexandrina Council, Country Arts Australia, Regional Arts Australia, Music SA and the SA Department of Innovation and Skills.  Her work has been recognised through the presentation of the Irene Bell Award by the SA International Women’s Day Association and being a finalist in the VIEW Club Inspirational Woman awards for the Fleurieu.  She has been interviewed on regional and state radio stations and podcasts and her photography has been featured on television and by various major digital & print media outlets.

Together with the help from the women of the She Is Seen Movement Libby has raised thousands of dollars for women’s charities and created a movement.
