Thanks Molly! I was afraid I wouldn't like the painting as much since it had been a few years since first seeing it, but I LOVE it so much! Your brushstroke is what makes the painting so incredible. It is PERFECT. Thank you so much! Fast shipping and packed really well too!

I can't recommend Molly's art enough. She's extremely talented and her paintings are more beautiful in person than you'll expect. We had a small mix-up at the beginning but she went far above and beyond to fix the issue. I will certainly be purchasing from her in the future and highly recommend that you do too.

Small Wonders

I believe that humans have an innate human need to connect with nature. As a city dweller, painting has become the primary means with which I connect to nature. Painting nature provides spiritual and emotional sustenance in a somewhat hectic environment.

My favorite subjects include birds, complex botanicals, insects and other small creatures. I seek to intuitively understand nature's colors and movements through paint. My characteristic style incorporates gestural brushstrokes, soft patterns, and muted forms. The line between abstraction and realism is blurred, evoking a quiet sense of atmosphere. For me, painting has evolved into a form of meditation.

I have always been an artist, and have always been captivated by the small wonders of nature. Currently I spend my days painting, teaching, and being a mom to two energetic boys. To be able to do what I love and share it with my children is truly a gift.
