I created the Reclaimed Heart series in response to my letter, I Was a Promiscuous Teen: An Open Letter to All the Men from My Past, which has been clicked on in every country in the world, for a total just shy of 200,000 times. I have heard from women all over the world who told me I was telling their story and thanked me for putting words to feelings that they had not been able to.
Thank you for your emails, DMs and comments. You have all made me realize that I'm not alone and, sadly, that my story is not unique. Originally a collection of fifty-five small paintings each of which has a paper heart, ripped up and then reassembled onto the canvas to signify the power I've taken back and the self love that I have reclaimed. Freedom is ours. Reach out and take it. These paintings are dedicated to you. It's never too late to take your power back and love yourself.
