Molly gives talks on a variety of topics including the development of her artistic career and balancing art and design, a lecture specifically about design and the relationship of artist and industry,  and more. Molly shares her experience as a former art student, artist, illustrator and designer with honesty, engagement and humor. Molly connects with her audiences through images and stories about her work, behind the scenes looks at factories, design process, museums and installations, and even some video. Molly shares the big lessons she’s learned as a self-supporting artist, designer and author.
