Molly is a mixed media landscape artist specialising in acrylic, ink and charcoal. 
 
Molly's abstract style began with her series, "Dyfed Forests” (2020)  which she produced for her first MA graduate show.
Molly is a mixed media landscape specialising in acrylic, ink and charcoal.


​​In her "Vapor" series, Molly investigates diaspora and the feelings it inspires and causes within nature and landscape, both negative and positive. On paper, she explores how representational shapes and abstract space balances within a composition containing remnants of prints, calligraphy, and a sense of distance. In these "vaporscapes", she uses colour and motifs to explore seasonality.
