Biography

Lin has always enjoyed expressing herself through words and pictures until life got in the way. In her teens she painted semi abstract dream like sketches inspired by record sleeve art by Roger Dean and Hypgnosis in her bedroom. 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. Because of this, she tried other mediums and fell in love with coloured pencils, pastels and more recently gouache. She also enjoys working in miniature. 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 or appropriate medium for the subject. 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. In October 2013 two of her pieces ‘Little Miss Patty’ and ‘Crystal &Grapes’ were selected by the panel of The Artist magazine as their choices of the month for their website gallery. In 2015 Lin won a Merit Award for her pastel piece Zebra Kiss and showed work regularly at the Art Alert Gallery in Nuneaton. She has recently provided the artwork for 'Local Impessions' the 2017 calendar in aid of Nuneaton hospital radio. Lin has just won a first in the pastels category and a section trophy at this year's Nuneaton Festival of Arts with her work on display at the town museum and gallery, for 'Happy Couple', a painting of 2 lions. 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. Lin has work and processes shown on her Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/LinGoodwinArt
