About
I'm Molly and I enjoy creating photographs for galleries – exhibits and commercial walls as well as offering them to people for their own personal spaces.
I used to only create black and white, wet dark room prints. So when you go to my black and white galleries, you will experience black and white images that I edit to look as close to a wet dark room print as possible. My most recent show is, Enchanted by Simplicity, a black and white collection of country churches found along the back roads of Pennsylvania, which I received a grant for.

The past 7 years I have really gotten into digital color photography and in my color images I really strive to show purpose to the color. These pieces are usually nostalgic, or ethereal scenes you would find along a back road, which is where our family spends most of our free time, hiking – geocaching and exploring.
Primary medium(s) I work in
  • photography/video
Do you offer custom work / commissioned work?
yes
How would you describe the technique(s) that you use?
I was trained as a film photographer. I currently use digital slr camera and a digital darkroom to create my pieces that are then printed.
What professional arts or related organizations do you belong to?
Eccota, PA Wilds, Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep
What is your background / education related to your artistic media?
I studied photojournalism at the University of Florida where I received an A.A. degree and then went to The Southeast Center for Photography where I received an A.S. degree. I continue learning daily, but my favorite learning experience was a 1 week intensive with master photographer, Jack Welpott in 2000.
