Chiu-Mei Lee had an accident during her swimming and diving training and suffered damage to the fourth cervical vertebra. All her limbs have been completely paralysed since then. During her occupational therapy she started painting with her mouth and found more and more pleasure in it. Not only does she want to express with her colours that her life has begun again but also the feelings she has deep in her heart. The works of the mouth painter show her talent as an artist.
