Welcome to the most recent iteration of margaretmlin.com, virtual home of Margaret Lin, artist and author. Here I post my artwork, news about my novels, and sometimes other topics of interest.

Beginning 8 February 2022, I officially switched hosts to WordPress. After moving my domain, I discovered that I was unable to migrate content formerly on margaretmlin.com, which dated back to 2016; the bare-bones hosting package I signed up for didn’t allow it.

To try and make up for the lost years, I’ve posted some “best-of” paintings:

I couldn’t bring myself to post artwork from the 2016-2021 website related to our beloved, beautiful dog, Nigel, whom we lost 7 October 2021.

Before margaretmlin.com, from 2010 to 2016, I posted my artwork at smallgreycat.blogspot.com.

I also have an intermediary blog with very limited content (hardly worth mentioning, but here it is for completeness): margaretmlin.blogspot.com.

Small Grey Cat Studio is named after another of our much-loved and missed furry family members. We lost him to old age in 2011.

I live in the Pacific Northwest with my husband and our cat.

Thanks for stopping by.

About my art and writing

I’ve long been inspired by the Impressionists and Post-Impressionists. I worked in traditional mediums for many years, mostly acrylics, as well as watercolor, gouache, and casein. Beginning in 2016, I gradually transitioned to digitally-created art, and now work in the latter exclusively.

I use the Krita desktop application. My hardware is primarily a Wacom Cintiq pen display, though I sometimes use my Windows Surface.

I have some of my acrylic paintings on display at Rehabilitation Medicine Associates of Eugene-Springfield P.C., viewable to their patients.

My novels and picture books are available at Amazon.com. Ebook versions of the novels are also available at a number of other online bookstores. See Books2Read for the list.

My novel, The Underground Girl, was one of the Multnomah County Library’s Library Writers Project Selections for 2018, and a number of my books are available to check out from their online collection.
