maryanne moodie

I’m about to totally date myself, but… one of my earliest childhood memories involves a visit to a “real artist’s studio”. This “real artist” was a good friend of my mom’s {my mom is an amazing painter, btw}, and she had a loom… because it was 1978! I remember working for hours and hours on my very own tapestry. My parents had that terrible weaving on their wall for years. Well, after seeing this work by Melbourne, now New York based, artist Maryanne Moodie I so badly want a do-over! She has taken this stereotypically 1970’s art form and so beautifully modernized it with her use of bold geometrics, and unbelievable color choices.

Maryanne has a website, but I also follow her on Instagram, which is where I found all of these fantastic images. I love that there are finished pieces, works in progress, and colorful supplies fresh from the yarn shop! Gorgeous, and oh, so inspiring. Ok, Mom… get the loom. I think I feel another tapestry coming on.

    I want to learn how to make tapestries SO BADLY. There is a class coming up in LA that I think I have to sign up for now.
