HOMETOWN: bozeman, mt

Education: BA in VIsual Arts, Colby College, ME

Molly returned home to Montana after college to be the Executive Director of the Danforth Gallery in Livingston. Now, from her sunny Bozeman studio, Molly juggles creating art, her graphic design business (Molly Stratton Design), and long hikes with her beloved pup, Willa, and anything that seems particularly challenging to the rest of humanity.

Artist Statement:

I am inspired by the patterns and colors of nature, and the tension between organization and chaos.  Unlike nature, I trend toward order over time, so I’m always trying to capture moments of looseness in my work.  Pushing my technique and the limitations of the materials is a constant challenge.
