Molly Moser grew up in a beautiful town along the Mississippi River and graduated from the University of Iowa. She received a BA in Studio Art and also studied museums and business administration. She worked in various campus museums and galleries including the Old Capitol Museum, the University of Iowa Museum of Art, and the Office of the State Archaeologist.
During the summer after her graduation Molly was selected to join the Grinnell Artist Residency, where she lived and worked with other painters, writers and actors. In August of 2010, she moved to Fairfield, Iowa and began working at the American Gothic House Center. While in Fairfield, Molly took classes and exhibited artwork at several shows in Flying Leap Art Space, a local gallery.
In May of 2011, Molly left her position as administrator of the American Gothic House Center. She packed her sister and some clothes into her car and drove 6,457 miles from Iowa to Colorado and Arizona, up the California coast to Oregon and back home through Montana. The trip temporarily fulfilled her desire to travel and confirmed her love of the mountains, ocean and overgrown plant life of the Pacific Northwest.
Molly currently resides in Des Moines, Iowa, where she enjoys her job in the education department at the Des Moines Art Center. She finds lots to love in the cultural events, bike trails, and farmer's markets of Des Moines. She continues to study art and to paint, draw, and take photos.
Molly’s paintings explore relationships between families, friends and partners. She creates interior spaces to document the imprint of human life, using the personal objects that occupy them to show emotion and interaction between people.
