I am a visual artist based in Raleigh, NC. I believe that paintings are windows, mirrors, and portals through which energy is exchanged, and that a healing energy can emerge through acts of creativity. In my work, I transmute this energy to the collective, explore connections between inner and outer worlds, and illuminate the presence of the ineffable divine power that is expressed in the pattern of all things.
I am driven to reveal the kinetic energy of spiritual forces and their interplay with this reality, in order to inspire within viewers a sense of connection to invisible realms. Symbolism, synchronicities, sacred geometry, and meditative practices ground my faith in the existence of these forces, and my visions are received through a conduit state in which conscious decision-making is surrendered.
Within my paintings, elements of the natural world serve as analogies for emotional and psychological states. Light is emphasized throughout my work to honor the ancient astral energy that is inherently part of all creation, and to serve as a beacon of Remembrance - light is where we came from and it is where we are going. Light guides us through sorrow into new ways of being.
Molly grew up in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania as the middle child in a family who encouraged her creativity. Throughout her youth, she maintained a steady relationship with creative expression, through music and painting.
In 2007 Molly graduated from Kutztown University of Pennsylvania with a degree in Art Education. From there she became a full time art teacher, moving from Philadelphia to New York, and finally to North Carolina in 2011.
After 7 years of teaching, a variety of stressors drove Molly to leave her teaching career and start pursuing the path of an independent artist. 2014 saw her last days as a full-time teacher, and the first public displays of her work. Since then she has exhibited in galleries, shows, and festivals around the Southeastern United States. In 2015 Molly discovered the art of body-painting, and was immediately enamored. She participated for three years in the Living Art North American Body-Painting Championships, finishing 4th in the Emerging Artist category in 2017, against a strong field of international artists.
Nowadays Molly primarily creates intuitive paintings and commissions from her home-studio, and she is a conductor and crew member of The Vision Train, an international art community that emerged in 2020 (see the "Resources" page). She still loves to teach part-time, and when not working on projects she enjoys being outside, connecting with others, and going out for long distance runs.
