Mapping the Arts in Easthampton, Southampton, & Westhampton


Molly McLoughlin


I continually strive to find a way to make sense of my world through little paintings, sketches and notebooks while simultaneously thinking up children's book stories and scribbling away illustrations to accompany these stories. In this, I find I am living with a creative lens honing into images, color and light that inspire me on a daily basis.

I grew up in New Hampshire where we had a fantastic intro to art in our elem. schools. From there I moved a number of times, always toting my art supplies and sketchbooks along with me. I spent some time formally studying art before going my own way. Now I spend my days painting/playing at a studio desk in my apartment with my yellow lab curled up at my feet.

I have the delightful surprise of being a Grand Champion at a few summer state fairs as well as having my art featured on the front of a book.
