A Detroit native, Molly strongly supports the movement for green design and innovation. She moved to New York years ago to attend the Christie's MA in Art Business program. After spending most of her time with 19th Century American paintings, she joined the living art world, and has become a freelance writer and researcher for artists, galleries, and curators. She most recently spent a summer studying Art Crime in Italy, and that is all she is allowed to say about that.
