In 2005 Lin Williams took early retirement and returned to Cornwall to concentrate on painting seriously. Starting with exhibiting with local art societies she found success, which spurred her to enter Cornwall Open Studios in 2007. From there she grew a body of work for solo exhibitions and also to put forward to galleries. This self-taught artist experimented with watercolours, oils and acrylics. Six years ago Lin tried pastels and immediately realised that this was her preferred media. Her desire to paint is fuelled by catching the very essence of atmosphere and mood. She thrives on seeing the changing light, seasons and colours. "I never tire of walking my favourite haunts looking and watching for that special moment that will draw my eye," she says. "To find new territories is a great excitement – there is nothing like discovering a huge sky throwing light onto slices of a new panorama, to make me reach for my pastels." Lin plans to continue painting her beloved Cornwall while also painting further afield.
