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!

Rebecca... I think you would just eat this place up, it is so astoundingly beautiful... photos aren't doing it justice.

Tommye, it does me so much good to know I have friends out there cheering me on!

Thanks so much for your lovely comment! I wish you were here in person to see all I am seeing... it is so massively beautiful that it is hard to convey thru mere photos.

Wow!!! I'm smiling to myself after reading this post and savouring every shot. But dinner is almost ready and I'll have to come back and read it all again later. So many things that I've loved to hear about. What an adventure. Wonder if you'll catch shots of number 54 on future trips?

Rebecca, as I was waiting for this post to upload, I was catching up on reading your blog posts... your musings about meaning, purpose, art are always so inspiring for me, but especially now. It reminded me to squeeze everything I can out of this experience that I am so fortunate to have.

please excuse any errors..

Wonderful, wonderful! Thanks so much for sharing about your adventure--and the condor viewing opportunity is a confirmation of why you should be there!

Rebecca Mezoff

This looks fantastic Lyn! Loved seeing the photos expecially--both of the scenery and the condors. Also, I love the sketch for the demo tapestry.
