Painting & Mixed Media Sculpture
Molly knew she wanted to be creative at a young age; she would draw for four hours while driving to her grandparents. Even as young as 5, her drawings were very intricate. She always had an eye for patterns and simply stuck with it.
Molly has been influenced by art and artists of all styles and mediums throughout history, and she sees every day as an opportunity to learn new things. Molly believes that this combination of history and new information is sure to bring about artistic inspiration.
Molly’s studio is full of amazing work, but her favorite piece is her life-size painting of grizzly bear. At 9 feet tall, it is very realistic and full of personality! Another breakout piece for Molly has been an abstract horse mural. Both of these pieces, and many others, show Molly’s love of animals and nature.
The advice Molly has received about creativity is, “Don’t be afraid to mess up!” Things will be imperfect, and you work from there. This helps you grow as an artist.
Molly hopes visitors on the Studio Tour will gain appreciation for the work she does, see the classes she has to offer, and maybe even be inspired to take on the work of becoming an artist.
Don’t miss this opportunity to spend time with Molly in her beautiful studio. She would love to meet you!
