Amy Lin


I was born in China, raised in Taiwan. I have lived in Amherst, Massachusetts, Pullman, Washington and Cary, North Carolina before I settled in Southern California for the last 37 years. I have a B.A. and M.A. degree in Chineese Literature from National Taiwan University, Taipei, Taiwan, Republic of China.

Art-Related Work Experience

I have traveled extensively in North America, China, South Asia, Europe, Russia, South America and Northern parts of Africa. I am inspired and attracted to the places I visited and the people I met. I started my painting hobby with Chinese calligraphy and the Chinese brush paintings more than 15 years ago. During the last few years, I have focused on watercolor. I have worked with a couple of famous Chinese artists and several wonderful local artists and teachers. Among them are Feeling Lin, Tom Fong, Brenda Swensen, Barbara McLaughlin and Judy Schroeder.
