Exhibiting regularly at galleries throughout Melbourne since 2017, Hsin Lin is a local artist affiliated with the Victorian Artists Society. With a background in fashion design, Hsin Lin now works predominantly with acrylics on canvas. Describing how inspiration for this work is drawn from the observation of nature, she describes how “I especially enjoy walking around Ringwood Lake and local parks, where I am often accompanied by various local birds such as pink cockatoos, white cockatoos, magpies, rosellas and all kinds of birds.” For the artist, the playful and highly social Major Mitchell Cockatoos represent inner influence, balance, joy and abundance.
