Growing up in New York exposes a person to endless avenues of inspiration. The glamour of the city instilled the art bug in me from a very young age; in my defense, it was almost impossible to escape. I grew up watching my mother draft floor plans in her basement studio, fascinated by the technicality of her work and almost always succeeding in stealing one of her fancy Prismacolor markers to use in my coloring books. It was only a matter of time before I followed my own artistic strand, allowing it to take me towards graphic design.
As I developed as a person, I also developed as an artist. I began to deviate from my path as a designer to integrate my inspirations into other avenues of creativity. Hi My Name Is Mollie is a project as much as it is my ongoing body of work. It was born from my desire to dabble in everything, and my absolute refusal to be boxed as a single creative entity. I want to bring together forms of art; I want to make people think. I want to make myself think. And I always want to keep creating.
Mollie is a 26 year-old taco-loving New Yorker living in Los Angeles. She is currently working on expanding her creative empire into the world of film, where she will undoubtedly win an Oscar and dedicate the win to Guy Fieri and the entire cast of Star Wars.
Mollie has a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design from the University of Tampa with a minor in Fine Art. She spent a semester abroad in Florence, Italy, where instead of partaking in the culinary culture she chose to eat at the McDonald's around the corner from her flat. Somehow the Italians championed the bacon double cheeseburger before America could.
