About Molly

Molly received a BFA from University of Minnesota, Minneapolis and a MFA from Washington State University. She is now an instructor back in her hometown of Brookings at South Dakota State University where she teaches painting, drawing, and design.

Molly describes her work by saying, “As an artist, I focus on how formal elements create non-representational landscapes. I use color, shape, texture, and line to promote visual compositions that relay a sense of the musical. Color fields present abass line or rhythm and texture and line work adds the melody and bits of the staccato. There are vibrations that occur between colors, there are tensions thatform between different types of surfaces, and there are harmonies that unfold when moving your eye from line into shape back into line. I strive for visual compositions that evoke sound. I listen to music and turn what I hear into visual imagery”.
