Lin explores and exploits oil paints in layers by scratching back and adding marks and forms, using a variety of tools and often just fingers or a palette knife to manipulate the paint. She often works over a background of text which is physically integrated yet stylistically juxtaposed adding contemplation. She does figurative and still life paintings; and also abstracts.
Her background is deeply rooted in fine arts, with a BA Fine Art degree in oil painting and after many years in Graphic Design and teaching, she has recently returned to oils.
She works and teaches in Oxfordshire at Limetrees Studio, 17 miles from Oxford and teaches oil painting at Ardington School and Oxford Summer School. She is an active member and the web manager of Oxford Art Society.
