Institutional & Private Collections

Click on an image to begin slide show.

Over  the years, I have been a little lax in keeping good pictures of my tapestries.
Of course, I can’t now make pictures of works that were sold and are not available,
so I have cobbled together here on my blog some of the records I can find.
The images will vary in quality, but I hope you will “get the picture.”
See the “Tapestry Inventory Page” for more images.

“Under the Volcano”, the tapestry pictured above, is hand spun mohair, natural dyes, 40″x108″.  It was also in a “Virginia Artists Exhibition” at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and subsequently purchased by the Northern Virginia Regional Office of AT&T.

    Turid, I’ve enjoyed all the pictures of your work, most of which I’ve never seen before. What wonderful colors! I especially enjoyed the landscapes and the Norwegian themes: Islands in Fjord, Norwegian Channel, and Norwegian Wood. I hope many of your museum friends will visit your website after reading the interesting article in the Volunteer Newsletter.

    As for Head in the Clouds……………..someone I know?
