Linda Tay’nahza’ has focused mainly on the monotype for twenty years. Her prints reflect the medium’s unique capacity for high color saturation. Her imagery has been influenced by her life in the mountains, and the years she lived on the Navajo Reservation in Northeastern Arizona. It was there she was given the name tsii’lai doo diniltso dii da, roughly meaning light colored hair, which was later translated to the English Tay’nahza’
Tay’nahza’ prints have received both national and international recognition in several invitational award shows, and are in print collections at the U of N, Reno, U of NM, Albuquerque, and the U of T, Austin. Her work has been purchased by Touchstone Pictures, Porsche North America, Northstar at Tahoe, Sierra West Bank and The Berkana Institute, as well as other corporate and private collectors. Her original prints have been incorporated into sportswear by Royal Robins and she has been a featured artist in the Sundance Catalog. She was selected for the Utah Women Artists Review 2000 and her work was included in the Utah Art Council’s Traveling Exhibit, 2000-02.
Tay’nahza’ has been the recipient of funding from the National Endowment for the Arts and the California Enrichment Fund. For several years, she worked with the John F. Kennedy Center’s very Special Arts Program, Nevada.
The small mountain community of Truckee California, located in the Sierras, was home for Tay’nahza’ for twenty years. There she raised her two children, taught, and established Tay’nahza’ Printmaking and Gallery. Closing the printmaking studio in 1993, she returned to Arizona and lived in Scottsdale for 3 1/2 years. In the fall of 1998, Tay’nahza’ relocated to Sundance, Utah for its beautiful blend of the west and the mountain communities she loves. While in Sundance, she has taught and continues to produce new work. She has recently completed the photography and writing of a book, Moving Into Natural With Wabi Sabi, for Gibbs Smith Publisher, Salt Lake City, Utah to be published, spring 2004.
