Trained by Nikon ---Influenced by Monet, Techniques of Ansel Adam. Her style has been said to be reminiscent of George O'Keeffe. A method of how to blend all of this has been learned by present day artist, Fay Sirkis. These greats have been her guiding light and have aided her in producing a style that is uniquely her own. Semoia feels wonderful to have received such complements as a Nikon Rep saying to her, 'You know what we don't know how to teach' and a local directress of a fine gallery called her to say ' I have never seen anything like it before, your work is exquisite, I cannot get it out of my mind.'
Printing is done on the finest paper that Semoia Lin can find. Each paper has different properties and produces different effects upon the creation. It is with great attention that the papers are chosen to best augment the particular style. Some papers come from Japan and others come from France. There is one that is reminiscent of raw silk and another is the Japanese Rice Paper, Etc., Etc., Etc.

In The Beginning
The Lion Dance is the welcome for Chinese The Year of The Snake , Maui Style. I don't think too many places in the world can beat Maui for shear opulence of the locations. The pictures start at The Grand Weilea and then go to The Four Seasons, The Shops of Weilea and on to The Streets of Lahaina, culminating at The WoHing Temple. It is one of the oldest Chinese temples in the western hemisphere.There were several fireworks displays during this event as Lions danced up and down the the corridors of hotels, The Shops and through the streets of Lahaina.
