Expressing her hopes, fears and love for special ecosystems, with her paintbrush, Lin Barrie believes that the essence of a landscape, person or animal can only truly be captured by direct observation.
She immerses herself in her subjects. The constellations and moon-phases of the night skies, the oceans and mangroves of the coast, the droughts, veld fires and regenerating rains of Africa - all are an inspiration to Lin.
