HSIN LIN, a Melbourne based artist who works mainly in acrylic floral art, born in 1984 in Taipei, Taiwan.
Before her Bachelor degree in Department of Finance and another diploma degree at RMIT University (Melbourne) , she showed her own passion and talent in Art and Fashion.
She launched her own personal label in late 20s ,being active in numerous international exhibitions and TV shows in Taiwan. Thereafter she come back to her beloved city- Melbourne in her early 30s, decided to extended her expertise in visual art.
HSIN LIN has been creating art full time for the past 3 years after her career as a professional fashion designer.
After going through the hard time of her life, she surprisingly regain the capability to see things in a new perspective and to feel the beauty of nature. She try to express her own aesthetics through her art, and the message of nature is her muse. She found acrylic is the perfect medium to interpret her intense passion due to its vivid and opaque property.
Previously HSIN LIN's work has been described as "Bold" and "Vivid" as she was into her own signature Wild Botanical Abstract Series, however she's currently working on more detailed, photorealism floral art that she had won awards for, to bring out the beauty of it.
Either the style, she devoted herself to deliver the peacefulness and calm of the nature to her viewer and collector.

Thank you for taking a look at my profile. I’ve been painting full-time ever since moving back to Melbourne three years ago.
Personally I would say my painting are mostly quite intense and emotional. However I do often got feedback from collectors that they feel the peacefulness in my artworks.
I love vivid, contrast colour combination, splashes, speckles, and the rough texture of the stroke . Most of my inspiration comes from the nature. I enjoy the joy of painting botanical art out of my own expression ,using the medium whatever I have in hand. I used to love the texture of different fabric while being a fashion designer, and now I am fascinated by the barks of Australian native trees, flower petals and bird's feathers. The nature of Australia is my inspiration most of the time.
Lots of the sparks of creation comes from my observation to the native trees and animals. The falling tree leaves in Autumn, various blooms in four seasons, falling feather of Cacatuas or Kookaburra, even the most common weed flowers as dandelion or a grass seed on the streets has its own inner-strength and message to deliver.
From where I live in Bayswater, there is a big field of forest right across the street. My creating process normally start from a short walk into the woods, by touching the texture of the bark , looking at the colours of the current seasons, feeling the sunlight reflected on the trees and grasses . I then collect whatever I found during the walk as inspiration. Sometimes would be the leaves of eucalyptus ,oak or pine, bird feathers; in autumn I have acorns, wattles and cherry blossoms in winter. There's only one rule for my collecting process, never take from the living tree/life. I took what had fallen only, and those are the gift from the nature of the day for me.
The best part of my nature collecting as inspiration is I also get to experiment with all kinds of natural medium out of ordinary brushes.
I want to capture those amazing moment that once touched my heart deeply into a piece of art. It would be wonderful that if the moment I freeze in my art can also let people who sees them feel the same or feel a moment of calm from it. That will be what I want to interpret in my art. Hope you enjoy.
