People live with individual challenges that may be physical, mental or emotional. Daily life changes when someone struggles with the effects of brain health issues. The perspectives of those who are medically strained or involved also change. It’s an emotional time. The artist was inspired by her own experiences and wants to help.
Mei Chan-Long lives in Toronto. All of her metal work is hand sculpted, with no heat. She believes creating using her physical strength helps her inner strength.
Her pieces are a reflection of life experiences with expression and positivity. They are all based on her health and living experiences. Creating is her inner therapy.
After brain surgery, Chan-Long is now at a life stage of appreciating, moving forward and not being afraid to share. She is hoping that her works of art will benefit others in some way.
