This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A resident of Tucson, she paints the Southwest landscape including Canyon de Chelly and especially the Santa Catalina Mountains where she has lived for several decades northeast of Tucson. She is especially fascinated by changing skyscapes, the subject of many of her paintings.

She grew up in Bakersfield, California and left home to study at the Chicago Art Institute where she earned a Master's Degree in 1968 with artwork that reflected the abstract vogue of the time. She discovered that city distractions caused her to miss the sky, light and quiet of the Southwest. She also traveled to England where tapestry paintings inspired an interest in Jungian psychology and stories of Greek mythology.

However, living in southern Arizona, she dropped intellectual analysis and symbolism in her painting and focused on that which she loved most--the changing skies.

Biography from Mark Sublette Modern:
Born in 1943 in Bakersfield, California, Lynn Taber was educated at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her early works incorporated the medieval technique of gold leafing in her interpretations of fairy tales and Native American creation myths. In 1988, she turned to landscapes and as a result of travel in the British Isles began to incorporate the monuments and sacred sites of neolithic man into her work.

Her move to Tucson, Arizona in 1970 and its desert landscape with its strong dramatic light and vastness of land and sky also was having a continuing effect upon her vision of the landscape around her. The subject of her work incorporated both actual and imagined sites. In 1993 she began to use pastel, and sky, clouds and weather began to dominate her landscapes in "almost formless atmospheres, visions of magical worlds, endowed with redeeming rain."

More recently, she has begun to incorporate human-made devices of bringing "weather" to the thirsty desert landscape. In her own words, "Water, the life giver, is showered upon the lands as humanity seeks to replace or augment natural rainfall. . .In the process, the visual power of the heavens is brought groundward, into the landscape, and man has, through artificial precipitation, usurped the role of nature."
