Lin Lin Hu was born and raised in Taipei, Taiwan and currently resides in San Pedro. At 23 years old she began studying art at the Academy of Art College in San Francisco. Before moving to United States, she studied Chinese history at the National Taiwan University. In addition to art, she has a passion for multi-culturalism and philosophy.
Her family background is a mixture of Taiwanese, Cantonese and Japanese so embracing cultural diversity is part of her upbringing. Upon graduating art school, she launched herself into the textile design industry and has worked in the industry for over 15 years. By the end of 2014, she made the decision to become a full-time artist and pursue her passion for painting. She uses different media in her creations and enjoys experimenting with new techniques and tools every day. She has accumulated an eclectic body of work which includes charcoal drawings and water color and acrylic paintings.
Her art philosophy and creations is inspired by The Energy of the cosmos and within each of us. She finds Light to be the most magnificent manifestation of that energy and believes everything reflects it with its own colors. She is fascinated by the dance between light and shadow. Since childhood, she has had poor eye sight; with -10.0 near-sight vision, she sees everything blurry. She used to think it was an obstacle and thought it would be impossible for her to be an artist, but now she considers her bad eye sight a blessing in disguise, for she can naturally see colors without fixating them within the refined shapes of things. With corrective lenses she can see clearly now, but she yearns to reveal her true vision in art. From realistic styles to loose strokes to just patterns, her style evolves as she grows less serious about reality. As an artist and painter, her mission is to celebrate the beauty of life force, the light, and the Nature in a personal way of how she sees colors.
