Molly Lemon is a Bristol-based artist. 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 with ink, Molly also embellishes her artwork using oil paint, oil pastels and water colours. She has recently begun to create wood engravings, currently featuring a range of British trees and British wildlife. Focusing on native flora and fauna is an important component of Molly's artistic process.
As well as perusing her artistic career Molly works part time as picture framer at The Little Framing Company in Bristol City Centre. This is an invaluable aid to Molly’s practice, allowing her to present her images in quality, bespoke frames, and in a way which is sympathetic to the artwork.
In 2016 Molly won the France Brodeur Young Artist Award. This came with a bursary which allowed Molly to develop her pressure printingtechnique. This six month project ended in Molly's first solo show at The Station in the Centre of Bristol.
