She was a successful Welsh pop star who toured the world, but a brain tumour at the age of 26 left Mared Lenny unable to sing and fighting for her life.
Four years on, her condition is improving.
But while the former singer from Carmarthen has had to abandon her music career, she has developed an extraordinary talent for painting.
BBC Wales arts correspondent Huw Thomas reports.
