Born in Switzerland, Heyden settled with her family in Durham, NC in 1966. During this time she devoted herself to the art of weaving, described her tapestries as:
"My tapestries are not paintings. They unfold on the loom within the possibilities and limitations of weaving. Once on the wall, my tapestries express their own identity in a woven composition."

Very good estate condition.
