Molly is an artist whose energy and creativity is fueled by nature's paint, the earth's living matter. With a background in fine arts and landscape architecture, she views each empty planter as a blank 'canvas' to paint with materials that come from the 'field' or soil. Each container is a uniquely designed piece of living artwork, a planted canvas.
Plants have a resiliency and forgiveness unlike any other matter that God has gifted us. One can have a single planter at their doorway or a collection of containers throughout their landscape, yet still experience the same kind of grace. Her work strives to be a reflection of wild nature rather than controlled symmetry.
"Everything that slows us down and forces patience, everything that sets us back into the slow circle of nature, is a help. Gardening is an instrument of grace." -May Sarton
