Inside of Me
‘Cancer patients have trouble expressing their feelings to family, friends and care-givers,’ explains Sonia Kneepkens. That’s what she found after interviewing patients undergoing chemotherapy at a local hospital. She noted down their most poignant expressions and translated these into a series of expressive drawings bound together in a book, Inside of Me. ‘Drawings form a universal, wordless language that makes complex, painful emotions visible and therefore easier to understand,’ she says. With her book, she hopes to inspire others in similar circumstances, helping them to cope.
