Sheila Lin was born in Taiwan. She, along with her family, emigrated from Taiwan to Canada in 1993, where she became a fulltime housewife abandoning her old occupation in the airline industry. Initially, Sheila Lin took interest in Chinese watercolour painting and learned from Taiwanese artist Anne Chiang. Years later, she began to learn the methods of oil painting with Chinese painter Wang-Li Zhang. From these two artists of different backgrounds, she gained knowledge of diverse painting techniques and her subsequent works of art reflected this newfound depth of knowledge. Among all the subjects and themes, she prefers capturing scenes of nature and believes that through nature, numerous emotions can be symbolized and portrayed. Her passion for art has no bounds; however, she is most grateful that through her ardent fervour for art, she has been blessed by the opportunity to meet many new, long-lasting friends.
