Born and raised in NYC, Molly attended Friends Seminary for high school, and graduated from Bowdoin College where she studied Art History and Theater, and was awarded the William H. Moody Prize for outstanding achievement in Theater. Since graduating, Molly has worked at a women’s health clinic in Portland, OR, and has fabricated for several artists (primarily in metals and fiber). Most recently Molly completed an art residency with Arrowmont Craft School in Gatlinburg, TN, and is now living in NYC, studying the Lost-Wax process for casting bronze. When she isn’t teaching, Molly is making art, reading, and tending the shade plants in her community garden plot.

I love seeing the distance students travel, from “not liking Shakespeare,” to understanding and enjoying it!
