In 2014, after 20-plus years as a successful entrepreneur in the beauty industry, Molly sold her "Molly's Skin Care Boutique" business and rekindled her passion for art. "Drawing has always been very relaxing for me," said Molly.
She turned her passion into becoming a full-time artist drawing and painting pet portraits, botanicals, and wildlife.
Molly now teaches online colored pencil and watercolor workshops. She has successful courses on creating Commissionable Pet Portraits, Beginners Colored Pencils, and, coming soon, Beginners Watercolor Course.
"I'm so happy to offer such detailed courses. They are everything I wish I had when I started drawing and painting again."
In May 2022, Molly was nominated president of the Chicago Chapter of The Colored Pencil Society of America.
"I'm so honored to be a part of such a great community of artists that want to help educate and give recognition to Colored Pencil Artists across the Country!"
Molly's award-winning artwork has been in art shows across Chicagoland. She is also a St. Charles Art Council member and very active in the local art community.
"I'm looking forward to creating a community of artists that enjoy colored pencil and watercolor art for relaxation, healing, and mindfulness," said Molly.
On Molly's Etsy shop, she has a variety of botanical and wildlife art in watercolor and colored pencil mediums. She sells originals, Giclee art prints, plus gift items.
