Visual artist Mary Mooney creates vibrant abstract art that’s sure to dress up your home and your jewelry box. Using a canvas of museum-grade acrylic, Mooney’s stunning necklaces are the perfect accent – or centerpiece – for your outfit, and her hexagon-shaped wall art will surely be the conversation piece of any room (see both at her booth at Porter Flea this weekend). We caught up with Mary, who recently participated in OZ Arts Nashville’s Modular Art Pods installation, and talked about her adopted hometown of Nashville, her favorite pair of pants, and why a great piece of jewelry makes getting dressed easier.
Where are you originally from?
I NEVER know how to answer this! I was born in Atlanta but my family moved every up and down the east coast every three years or so, and I don’t really have one place I identify as a childhood home. I have a lot of family in Georgia and Florida, so the South is a pretty familiar place.
