At the start of the corona crisis, Tina Van de Velde was diagnosed with autism. The 47-year-old Roeselaar channels her anger by painting dolls and making (often horrifying) creations. “Meanwhile, the anger has given way to satisfaction and this hobby has become an important outlet in my coping process.”
