You are invited to VAST’s guest artist presentation featuring oil and pastel artist Lin Hampton from 6:45 pm – 9pm on Wednesday, April 3rd at the Patterson-Appleton Arts Center in Denton, Texas. Lin works in oil and pastels. She will present information on painting with pastels and demonstrate different techniques you can use to get a specific effect, ranging from environmental to textural – that helps to elicit an emotional response from the viewer.  Lin uses a contemporary, distinctive stroke to render traditional views of everyday life with oils on canvas or wood panel, or pastel on board. Her work has developed over the years into a very distinctive process and “signature style”.

Lin states, “What inspires me to transform a particular landscape or figure into a two dimensional image, comes from the ‘spirit’ of the subject. If you look closely at my work, you might sometimes find little hidden items, scenes within a scene, or a symbol created with my unique ‘mark’. As I create, I incorporate my thoughts and ideas into my work.”

Lin is a long time resident of Denton, Texas. She is active in the Visual Arts Society of Texas (VAST), and has competed and placed in national and regional art competitions, and has won the Grumbacher Gold Medallion award.
