Lin is currently exploring mood and atmosphere through cloudscapes in oil painting, often in a square format, with paintmarks made using brushes, her fingers or a palette knife. In her contemporary landscapes, she works from observation, sketches and photographs.
Originally from South Africa, Lin’s background is deeply rooted in fine arts, and after many years in calligraphy and graphic design, she returned to her first love of oil painting a few years ago. This year she is studying the techniques of the old Masters, with an emphasis on Turner’s late work.
Lin teaches oil painting at Oxford Summer School and Ardington School of Craft with occasional workshops in her studio.
