Tapestries


Growing up in Georgia, and living in Atlanta’s Grant Park under a canopy of large trees, Lyn has sketched the skyline of trees and the play of light at dusk for years. Her current series of tapestries is based in part on these drawings.

The tapestries are woven with linen that is hand-dyed and over-dyed several times, layering color and variation into the yarn. The linen is then woven on a vertical tapestry loom. This process of dyeing and weaving creates subtle coloring and distinctive line.
