In her work, Molly uses pattern as a lens to explore the dynamic framework of interconnectivity. With a foundation in freehand drawing, she builds diverse compositions using geometric forms, exploring the rhythms and relationships that exist from the microscopic scale to the galactic.
Inspired by patterns in religious architecture around the world, she paints large-scale public works as an avenue to explore how principles of geometry and repetition can be used to synthesize similar spaces of heightened consciousness within the urban landscape. When she creates public works, she seeks out the distinctive pulse of each space in the service of activating its spiritually transformative properties.
Molly received her BA in Creative Writing in 2010 from the University of North Carolina at Asheville and currently lives in Atlanta, Georgia. She is a 2013-2015 Resident with The Creatives Project and works from a studio at the Goat Farm Arts Center. She has been involved in arts education programs with MOCA-GA, Emory University, the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis, Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, and One Love Generation. She has painted murals in collaboration with organizations and companies including Living Walls: The City Speaks, the City of Charleston, Fountain Art Fair, Indigo Hotels, Renaissance Hotels, W Hotels, the Atlanta Beltline, the Asheville Mural Project, and more.
