Christina Lau was born in 1972. She used to be a Prison Officer before she was paralyzed. On 2nd April 2005, she and her husband met with a car accident in Malaysia. On that day, it was raining heavily and out of sudden the car skidded and came to a halt. Immediately, a car from behind came very fast and bang into their car. The impact of the bang was very strong. So it resulted in her being paralyzed from her chest down with complete loss of finger movements. And she is also suffering from C6 spinal cord injury. The doctor told her that she will be permanently disabled.
After the accident, she did not give up on herself. She started to join the Tetra activities in 2009 and from there she got to know a group of friends who used their mouth to paint. Then, she was very curious and wanted to find out more about what is mouth painting? As before the accident, she never used to like painting or drawing but life has changed. Therefore, she started to pick up painting and skilfully taught herself to paint. She was recognised by MFPA as a Student Member in March 2012.
