Portuguese artist Vanessa Barragão creates gorgeous tapestry using techniques like felt, crochet, knitting, latch hook, and macrame. Her artwork is mostly inspired by the ocean and contains underwater motives like coral reefs, underwater plants, and animals.
Barragão got a Masters degree at the University of Lisbon and in 2014 she opened her studio and started creating tapestries, keeping this dying art form alive. She currently lives in Porto, the country’s textile industry capital. Besides running her own studio, she also works as a textile designer in an artisanal rug factory.
