    Fealing Lin of San Marino, California, was born in Taiwan and is pursuing her career in the United States as a
    watercolorist and senior art historian professor at Verna Wells.

    With a fluidity of colors, Lin combines impressionistic brush strokes and semi-abstract techniques to elicit life and
    movement in her portrait and landscape watercolors.  Her paintings adorn the paper with both harmony and emotion.

    Although briefly diverted from her passion by a family tradition of medicine and dentistry, Fealing ultimately
    abandoned her tray of instruments and high-speed drills in favor of her pallet and brushes. Now she is a teacher,
    demonstrator, judge, and active exhibitor.

    Based in Los Angeles, Fealing teaches classes and workshops across the country. She is a signature member of the
    National Watercolor Society, The Transparent Watercolor Society of America,Watercolor West, and many others. Her
    work has won numerous awards in national and international shows, and has appeared in many magazines and books,
    such as "Watercolor Magic", "Watercolor Artist", "International Artist" and Splash (North Light Books, volumes
    9,10,11,12,14, Retrospective, and 18), and Artistic Touch (volumes 4 and 5). Lin is one of 15 artists who contributed
    to Watercolor Secrets (North Light Books, 2009), which features her self-portrait on the cover. She is also
    internationally published in France and England by Pratique des Arts, The Arts of Watercolor and Encyclopedia of
    Watercolour(Hazel Harrison).
