Lin is a furniture designer and craftswoman. Her work explores purposeful functionality, playfulness, and art, often taking a modern twist on traditional craft techniques. Lin strives to create socially and environmentally conscious goods that foster healthy, sustainable, and enriched lives. By creating opportunities for sensory exploration, users experience moments of comfort, wonder, and curiosity. 

At the end of 2021, she wrapped up a year-long fellowship at the STEAM Studio through the University of North Carolina Asheville. During her time there, she explored teaching, community engagement,  and developing a design identity through her work. Currently, she is taking a deeper dive into craft and craft education as a member of the 2022 cohort of North House Folk School interns.
