Maryanne Moodie

Originally based in Melbourne, Maryanne now lives in Brooklyn with her family and creates stunning tapestries by hand. She’s only been weaving since 2010, Maryanne has built a devoted following who adore everything from her well-curated vintage collection to her dramatic custom-order wall hangings.Her pieces range from pastel blush tones of peach and pink to bright and bold primary hues—and everything in between. She also experiments with a wide variety of yarn gauges, making her weavings incredibly textural. After relocating from Melbourne, Australia, Maryanne started working out of a studio in New York, where she continues to make each piece by hand. 

She finds her inspirations by looking through art books and visiting galleries. She has a special affinity for textile artists who use color like Nick Cave and Ted Sabarse, and loves the crazy traditional and native fancy dress costumes caught on film by Phyllis Galembo.
