Insta love - Vanessa Barragao - Textile Artist

 
 
Happy Monday! We are starting the week featuring an extraordinary textile artist! Meet Vanessa Barragao!
 
Growing up at the seaside, she uses the connection to the ocean as an everlasting inspiration for her artworks. Her work features captivating coral reef environments in which she merges and combines crafts and recycled materials and by employing old techniques such as latch hook, felting, macramé, knitting and crochet she brings life to her unique and luxurious sculptural carpets, rugs and tapestries.
 
Visit her instagram and site for more of her eye-catching work.
