Alopecia – The hair loss (2020)

  • Acrylics on canvas
  • Measurements: 80×60 cm
  • Part of my 'Alopecia'-series

After a stressful year with some bald spots on my head, I was happy when after a few weeks the hair grew back. But then my long hair started to fall out again. From that moment on it went very fast. To take a shower and wash my hair was the most difficult. Because of the pressure of the water, the hair fell out even faster. Anxiety, sadness, panic… After showering I regularly sat in the bathtub feeling completely defeated. I had no idea if all my hair would fall out completely this time, I could only wait sadly…

At first I was in doubt whether I wanted to paint this part of the story or not. It’s so symbolic of how I experienced that short period of hair loss. Who would be waiting for something like this? I wasn’t sure if I would throw such a vulnerable image of myself into the world. I even felt a little shame. However, the urge to share something about this disease had made my doubts disappear. I also think it’s important to spread a message about embracing your negative and intense experiences in your life. Just by looking at it. To let it be. It was absolutely hard to paint this part of the Alopecia process, but it was also very therapeutic. Now I was able to give it a place, literally.

  • Part of my 'Alopecia'-series


When I was confronted with my autoimmune disease Alopecia, not only my life was turned upside down, but also the life of my partner. It was hard for me, but just as hard for him. He suddenly had a 'different girlfriend'; my appearance changed enormously, but mentally I had also received a major blow. We both had to learn to accept the situation. Despite everything, he has always been there for me. I'm so grateful for his support, his strength and trust in me. That has also brought me where I am today. Our relationship is stronger than ever. This painting is an ode to my love. Lots of love for him!

    Two years ago I was confronted with an autoimmune disease, causing my hair to fall out (Alopecia). My appearance changed a lot: I was bald, had no eyebrows, no eyelashes… Actually, I had no body hair at all. It's been hard to accept it, but now I'm at peace with it. I painted myself, including all of my imperfections: my baldness, my scars, my birthmarks, but also my scoliosis… It's all there and it's okay. This is who I am and I'm proud of it! In hard times, this painting always gives me courage and support.

This blue flower was created from my imagination. In fact, blue flowers are rare in nature and it is exactly this fact that makes it so special and unique. Being different is not wrong. For me, this painting symbolizes that thought.
