Drawing on past and present experiences, in combination with observation and imagination, Molly creates energetic, meditative color fields. Her style is direct--broad pencil marks, fluid brush strokes and a paint-loaded palette knife. Arresting abstract landscapes reflect an ongoing intuitive conversation between materials and ideas. Molly has contributed to numerous art educational initiatives with the Yale Center for British Art, Education Outreach Yale Art Gallery and Quinnipiac University’s “Celebration of Women in the Arts.” She collaborated on the art activities book Moved to Write by Jane Hoder, former education outreach director of the Wadsworth Atheneum, Hartford, Connecticut. Molly's art has been recognized with national and local awards.
