Lin's work is well known for his unique combination of the eastern artistic themes and the western expressive instruments. With a strong training in eastern painting and art history, Lin often goes to his roots to look for his artistic inspiration. Lin's personal beliefs of and strong passions for the arts are clearly illustrated in all his works. There are two distinct characteristics of Lin that differentiate his from others. First, instead of capturing one creative inspiration with single piece of painting, he often savors that inspiration and prefers to create a series of painting on the same theme or topic. To him, the latter presents a more artistically challenging and testing task. Secondly, he likes having the opportunity to explore a variety of styles, which adds diversity and richness to his work.

Lin taught at Jinan University in China, Foothill College and Pensacola Junior College in the United States. His paintings are found in many private and corporation collections in the United States and abroad. He has had more than ten solo shows and many group shows in U.S. and abroad. He won many awards in art shows.
