About Lark Erin

Lark Erin was born in La Jolla, California. She spent her childhood outside in the canyons and on the beach, collecting shells and gazing at the beauty around her.
She received her B.A. in Fine Art from Scripps College for Women in Claremont, California.
During a summer in between her two years at Claremont Graduate School, she attended The San Francisco Tapestry Workshop for a month-long submersion in the ancient tapestry art form. The class was led by multi-generational French weaver Jean Pierre Larochette, and Yael Laurie.

After receiving her degree, Lark Erin lived and worked in the fjords of Norway for an entire summer, which served as inspiration for much of her art.

Concurrently with the raising and homeschooling of three creative daughters, Lark has spent countless hours at both her upright tapestry loom, as well as her mother's floor loom.
Lark Erin has exhibited nationally, and was featured in Fiber Arts Magazine.

Artist Statement

I noticed a grasshopper once and, being so delighted by it, pointed it out to a fellow student. His response was a shrug and "So what?" That "So what?" is what I examine and express in my art. It is a focus on the richness and complexity of the natural microcosm. In my art I dramatize the miraculous in nature and share my interpretation and intimate scrutiny of ephemeral things. It is the moment I emphasize, a visual instant within which the mysteries and secrets of the universe can be considered through visual observation.


Tapestry weaving seems to express my feelings about nature with an uncanny accuracy. The agitated, spiritual delight which runs rampant in my soul is recorded this way. Each thread winds its way from shape to shape, line to line, taking note of every last detail. As I do in actuality, I do in my weaving; cherish the most minute, strive to capture the most elusive. When I experience otherworldly beauty in the natural environment, my spirit dances. When I am finished with the tapestry, the dance will live forever. The spirit has been made visible.
