Mary Little is an Irish-born artist that lives and works in Downtown Los Angeles. She began her career after graduating from the Royal College of Art in London as an avant-garde furniture maker–working in one-of-a-kind pieces of furniture. In recent years, Little’s work has shifted from a furniture-based practice, into an exploration of the fiber. Little uses unbleached artist canvas to recreate her childhood memories of Ireland’s landscape.
Little’s work has been shown internationally at the Craft and Folk Art Museum, Los Angeles, the Textile Museum, Washington D.C. and Übersee-Museum, Bremen, Germany. Her furniture is in the permanent collections of the Vitra Design Museum in Basel, Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Paris, and Victoria & Albert Museum, London and in private collections in Europe and North America. Her work has been reviewed in Fabrik, The New York Times, Luxe magazine and Architectural Digest.
