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!

Keep following your path, Rebecca... it's a good one!

Thank you Lyn. For the thoughts and for the encouragement.


Thank you, Gaelyn! I am looking forward to seeing you again... whenever that will be. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate your advocacy & I understand it's kind of out of our control. Well, there's a reason for everything & I am a firm believer that things tend to unfold as they should. I hope the end of your NR season is full of peace, beauty, & color!


Happy Birthday Beautiful Lady! Birthdays are often a time of reflection. Sorry you lost your friend and music mentor yet glad to hear you carry life lessons from the experience.

Wish I had news about letting the condor fly. It's really in Robin's hands and I've been away.


Thank you for the well wishes, everyone!

Debbie, I hope your birthday is so good... I really feel that this side of 50 is when life really gets juicy for women. We are so much surer of who we are & less interested in what people think. Life is beautiful.

Another pizza & a CRUMBLE for my birthday, Annie! Keep making lovely music, I am eager for another CD. I am also eager to get a piano back into the house, once the construction dust has settled.

Merna, I am so excited & honored that you want to journey to the North Rim. As you know, even though it isn't the easiest place to get to, it is worth every mile one has to travel. Hopefully, I will (along with a certain bird), be traveling there, soon!

Hi Lyn. Happy birthday!! Your pizza looks divine. What a great way to say hello to the oven again. I could quite happily tuck in even though it's breakfast time here. Lovely words about your cello teacher friend. As you know, I do that work as well, so I know it's transformative power. Enjoy your piano playing. I like the new look of your page.


A most Happy Birthday, Lyn!

Thank you for your beautiful, inspiring writing and photgraphs. I'm eagerly looking forward to returning to the North Rim, this time to visit your Condor when it's in place.

May you have a fulfilling new year.

Debbie Herd

Happy Happy Birthday Lyn! I am sorry for your loss. I will be 54 this month, it does make you reflect on what is important. 'Live each day like it may be your last' I hope you get to do something nice on your birthday! Debbie.
