Molly Lemon is a printmaker living in the Cotswolds. In 2015 Molly graduated from Winchester School of Art with a BA Fine Art Degree (Hons). Working mainly within printmaking, her work is driven by a fascination with British wildlife and natural forms in the landscape. Growing up on the edge of Dartmoor in Devon, this need to recreate nature in her artwork has always been present. Her mother's interest in British birds and the countryside living inspired Molly's bird greeting cards as well as her annual bird calendar.
In addition to her printmaking, Molly also embellishes her artwork using oil paint, oil pastels and water colours. In 2017 she began to create wood engravings, and this technique has become her favourite medium. Focusing on native flora and fauna is an important component of Molly's artistic process.
Molly is also trained as a picture framer so you can by her work framed as well and unframed.
In 2016 Molly won the France Brodeur Young Artist Award. This came with a bursary which allowed Molly to develop her pressure printing technique. This six month project ended in Molly's first solo show at The Station in the Centre of Bristol.
In 2017 Molly was awarded a scholarship at Spike Print Studio in Bristol where she was able to develop her printmaking skills further.
