Editor’s note: Daffnie Realpe was previously employed by The Daily Nebraskan.

It wasn’t until 2016 when Daffnie Realpe began developing symptoms. When they did start showing up, she found it hard to continue schoolwork. But throughout her experience with this disease with no known cure, Realpe never stopped loving art, and she doesn’t plan to.

Realpe is a senior painting major at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, about to finish her college career.

“I have comorbid fibromyalgia with paresthesia,” she said. “It affects my entire body with muscle pain and weakens me entirely if I have a flare up. Unfortunately, there's no cure, but I'm trying to adapt as much as possible.”

Realpe shared her painting style and the inspiration from her life that fuels her art with The Daily Nebraskan. See more about her personal journey and work on her Instagram page.
