bright colors, imagination, & social justice
Lin Musick is a joyful artist who fills the studio with laughter whenever she is in. She is inspired by
She likes to paint and draw themes of social justice and heritage, especially of her personal heroes of the Black Lives Matter Movement. All of her paintings are covered in bright colors that explode off of the canvas, and her clay creations seem to have lives of their own. Lin says, "Sometimes its easier for me to not think about what I am doing; I feel like an artist's work can speak for them." She lets her imagination take control and embraces whatever it brings.
Lin finds peace in the outdoors and the garden by the studio and helps take care of the plants. She likes listening to music and reading, especially stories about the American Girl dolls she collects.
Recently, Lin has been working on an African mask that she is very excited about. She likes to find ways to "incorporate her African culture," and the mask is a perfect representation of her passion.
"I love bright colors; they just make me happy. They remind me of my home in Africa, where everyone wears bright colors. All the bright colors look good with our complexions. We also wear lots of jewelry, and it makes noises when we dance. Dancing reminds me of Africa."
