The story behind this painting:

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. My self-image was badly damaged, the confidence in my body was gone and I could no longer identify with my new appearance. We both had to learn to accept the situation. Despite everything, he has always been there for me. I’m so grateful for his infinite 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!
