About Lin

My parents were artists, so from an early age I was surrounded by art. Later in life I developed a love for cultural heritage - so I explored the art traditions of different cultures, which greatly influenced my own work. I experimented with many different mediums, and found the ones that worked well for me. I am also naturally creative, and I enjoy helping other people bring out their own creativity and discover their best methods of creative expression.

I went on to finish a Bachelor's in Visual Communications and a Master's in Museum Studies, because I love galleries and museums. My own work has been exhibited in gallery shows, as well. I've also taught a wide variety of art and crafts classes; painting, pen and ink, polymer clay, Celtic knotwork, creativity, paper making, jewelry, and much more. I'm looking forward to helping more students achieve their goals.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Anthropology

My associate's degree is in Anthropology. My specialty within Anthropology was linguistics, but I am also knowledgeable in Cultural Anthropology.

Cooking

I focus on gluten free cooking for people who have recently had to go gluten free and have no idea how to cook tasty meals. I have Celiac disease, so I have many years of experience cooking and eating gluten free. I will show people hidden sources of gluten to avoid, and I can also show people how to convert recipes over. You can still cook a wide variety of foods: Thai, Chinese, Italian, etc.

Drawing

I've taught classes on drawing in galleries and community centers. I focus on pen and ink as a medium in these classes, primarily, and I love helping people explore its creative potential. I cover art basics and creativity. I also love to explore sequential art and its use for storytelling.

Graphic Design

My Bachelor's degree is in Visual Communications, much of that focused on design aspects, including typography and even digital design. I prefer the old methods used by my parents, in the days when everything was cut and paste, by hand, with no computers - but either method offers a wide range of creative expression.

Painting

My primary focus teaching painting is acrylics, but I also cover watercolor washes with pen and ink. I have taught at art galleries and community centers, for people of all ages. I like to focus on creativity and art basics, then technique.
