My Photo

  • I am a tapestry artist & naturalist living in the beautiful Sonoran Desert, an environment of constant inspiration. Within these pages you will find not only a portfolio of my works but also many tales, thoughts, and musings about my journeys in tapestry weaving & life; the two are as closely linked as warp & weft and so should not be separated.

  • Grand Journey
    I was the September 2010 Artist-in-Residence at Grand Canyon National Park's North Rim. This is a chronological portfolio of the creation of Grand Journey, a tapestry depicting a life size California Condor in flight over Grand Canyon that the Park requested me to weave. The finished tapestry is approximately 6 feet wide by 10 feet in height. Creation of this piece began in December 2010 and was completed in February 2013. She will go on permanent display at the North Rim's Visitor Center in late summer of 2013. I have the distinct pleasure and honor of being the first contemporary tapestry weaver to be awarded a National Park Artist Residency, and also the first to have my work included in a National Park's permanent art collection!
