Three artists are co-hosting Artweeks at Lin’s studio for the first time. Lisa offers exquisite bespoke jewellery; Jo Marshall has a colourful collection of ceramics and Lin’s paintings will be on view. Visitors are welcome to pop in to be inspired, or just to browse and chat.
Lin’s new collection is a colourful eclectic series of small panels using oils, photographic images, pattern and metals. These gem-like paintings draw from her trove of beautiful objects and is inspired by Klimt and Fedden. Many of these draw from initial watercolour studies (also available) of the old-bottle collection, berries and seed heads.
Her large artworks are original contemporary landscapes of the Oxfordshire Ridgeway. Many are atmospheric with echoes of the past, suggesting the ancient people who changed the landscape with their ‘land art’ including the incredible White Horse. Lin glazes, scratches, finger paints and makes marks, often using oils over text. Sometimes she uses brushes.
If you wish to purchase her artwork before Artweeks, visist the website and do contact Lin. Many of the paintings are available as giclées. You are invited to discuss your ideas or purchases by email.
Lin's best place to be is in her studio - a large conservatory looking into the garden with her three silver birches, offering dappled shade. She works using drawing, mixed media, watercolour and oils. All her works begin with observation.
She trained in Fine Art in South Africa and has been painting and in love with the English countryside for the last 24 years.
Lin taught art for many years and is now concentrating full time on her own work. She says: Thank you to all the students who have supported me over the years. I will miss you.’ Lin has taken part in numerous exhibitions with 2 solos exhibitions and is a very active member of Oxford Art Society, helping manage the website and Instagram for OAS.
