Fiber artist Maryanne Moodie weaves wonderfully colorful pieces of art to be hung on the wall. Inspired by vintage textiles, traditional costuming, modern art, and the natural world, she loves applying unexpected color combinations to her overall nostalgic designs.
Dividing her time between Melbourne, Australia, and Brooklyn, NY, she works as both artist and mentor: designing and creating woven wall hangings, developing weaving kits, and teaching workshops across the world.
“I love what I do,” she told Created Here. “It has evolved so slowly that I have been able to make small movements in the direction that felt right at the time. I have brought on people who are invested in the vision, and we work together to make sure everyone is feeling happy and secure at each point of change. We really feel like a family.”
“Weaving is really a therapy for me,” she went on to say. “It allows me to explore emotions that I otherwise don’t give myself time to fully appreciate and explore. I like to return to the same moment or emotion a number of times to delve deeper, weaving the same emotion from different angles.”
Her work is sold both on Etsy and through online shops and boutiques around the country, but you can also enjoy it from afar through her Instagram page. Here are some of her page’s highlights:
