Her practice specialises in drawing, she draws obsessively on 2D and 3D forms. Molly’s practice is inspired by literature and explores themes of womanhood, self, and mundanity. Her work is decadently intricate and detailed, subverting conventional images of beauty and femininity to explore darker realities. Her recent practice has involved completing an artist residence with the Cordial Eye Gallery in Massachusetts, focusing on how the concept of ‘Joy’ can be used for sustained political activism. She is a continued Artist in Residence for Mouthing Off Magazine. Molly has worked with Pow! Thanet to develop engaging community exhibitions, her co-organised ‘Women in Protest’ show celebrated the Greenham Women. Adapting to Covid 19 which prevented the conventional use of galleries, the show utilised Margate’s Broad Street and took over several windows of local businesses.
