Mollie grew up outside of Portland, Oregon, where her brother with autism sparked her interest in using art to make connections with people. Spending hours her brother drawing saints and nuns, she saw art as a cathartic outlet for them both. From there she discovered fonts and calligraphy, and it has since become a lifelong passion. She earned BA degrees in Political Science and Spanish and a Masters in Social Work from the University of Washington, but she always made time to make art, experimenting with new techniques and materials. Through her training as a social worker, Mollie learned the role art could play in healing and providing a positive outlet for people to express themselves.
