Lin has always enjoyed expressing herself through words and pictures until life got in the way. She again took up Art in 2006 due to poor health and disability and uses it as therapy and can only work in short bursts. Self-taught Lin has experimented in various mediums and genres and is a contemporary realist. Most of her work now is done in an armchair with a board across her lap as she is unable to sit at an easel.
She has participated in many international exchanges and has work in the USA, Canada, The Phillipines, Australia, New Zealand, France, Spain and Germany and a few in the UK. She also undertakes pet portrait and vehicle commissions in coloured pencil.
She had her first solo exhibition in 2012 at Bedworth Arts Centre. Lin is a member of the Association of Animal Artists, The Wildlife Art Society International and the UKCPS (UK Coloured Pencil Society) and has assisted with demos at their International Open Exhibition held in 2012 at Nuneaton Museum and Art Gallery. She has also had work and articles featured in the UKCPS quarterly magazine Talking Point. She regularly exhibits in the Nuneaton area with Art Alert, including a collection in their town gallery. She has won awards and the Snr Fawcett Trophy with Nuneaton Festival of Arts and promotes coloured pencils as a fine art medium.
Lin is a member of and has exhibited with The Wildlife Arts Society International exhibition at Nature In Art in Gloucestershire and Dudley in 2016.

We sat down for coffee and cake at the cafe at Stackpole Quay. Before long these visitors all came across and started to pick up the crumbs from the table. They flitted back and forth between the tables, not afraid of anyone as they chose what to eat from the abundant buffet on plates and trays.
