Molly grew up in Manchester, New Hampshire. As a child, Molly showed talent in art-making and took many courses through the local museum school. Her interest soon developed into a passion for the arts that led Molly to attend Massachusetts College of Art and Design, where she received her BFA in 2013. In addition to graduating with painting honors, Molly has participated and curated exhibitions in Manchester, Boston, New York, and Charlotte. She is currently living and working in Charlotte, North Carolina. 

From the artist: My work aims to create relationships between color theory, geometry, and repetition. I have always been intrigued by the connections between psychology, biology, and perceived color. The biology of seeing and emotional responses to color have motivated me to pursue my master's in psychology. I am eager to explore the physiological and psychological networks that encourage our experiences with art.
