Molly Reed, Artist
    






Hi everyone,

I have loved drawing since I was very small and I've always been intrigued by faces. I enjoy portrait drawing and especially capturing a special look or expression in a person's face . . .   

                    



 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
       your works are wonderful, I know that full well ...

Psalm 139:14 A Psalm of David
(New International Version)



I graduated from college in 2001 with a degree in Art Education and an Associate degree in Visual Arts. 

For the past few years though, I have been snapping pictures of beautiful sunsets in my backyard and have come to realize I have a new found passion --capturing awesome scenes that only last a moment . . .

Now in my travels, I am discovering even more incredible scenes beyond my back yard . . .

The Good Lord paints them in the sky for us to see and it's amazing . . .I've been completely blown away by His masterpieces . . .


~Molly Reed
