Learn About Grants for Artists' Progress (GAP)


Jiemei Lin is an illustrator born in Hangzhou, China, currently living and working in the Inland Northwest, Washington State.  Lin work with both digital media and traditional media such as watercolor, pencil, oil, and mixed media. Her works frequently take on themes of individual and cultural identity with a particular emphasis on design and color. Lin’s mission as illustrator is to represent and communicate with young audiences from underrepresented groups in my own visual language. She believe that everyone deserves to have their story told and that every relationship begins with kindness and love. Recently, Lin has been designing and executing large-scale public murals in the inland Northwest. These murals function like vignettes or moments of stories, inviting the viewer into the scene in order to imagine possible narratives. Lin has extensive experience in the fields of design, illustration, and have also exhibited my own paintings and prints.
