Introducing the art of Molly Scott:

Featured Artist @ Western Carteret Public Library for the month of September and November:



Molly Scott

Originally from Rocky Mount, NC, I moved to the Crystal Coast in 2000. I am self-taught as well as an educated artist, having studied art and art history at William Peace University in Raleigh NC and East Carolina University in Greenville NC. My husband William is currently teaching elementary school in the Alaskan Bush and I have two grown children. We have made our home in Emerald Isle with a number of pets. I love to travel during the summertime and holidays with my husband. Other times you will find me working on my art, gardening, reading, hiking and fishing. My art has been sold by word of mouth and private viewing. There are many more pieces available that are not on exhibit. If you are interested in talking about my artwork or purchasing a piece you may contact me at or call 252-354-7694 and leave a message. Thank you and..

EarthChild Originals

Greetings! My name is Molly Scott and I would like to introduce you to EarthChild Originals. My art started with a two-fold purpose. One to sustain my creative urges to put paint on canvas and second to do something with all of the fabric left over from my quilt making days. After many hours of contemplation, and trial and error, I started my first work. Using fabric pieces like paint, with the added bonus of little patterns in the different colors. After a few days my first piece was finished (8X12). It was very small and simple.

My artwork has evolved through the years. I use many more pieces of fabric choosing the right color and tone. I currently work with around 350 different patterns and colors of fabric. Therefore, Im always a good customer at the local quilt shops where they have a lot of material for my medium. Each canvas contains hundreds of pieces of carefully cut fabric used to achieve effect. It takes between 6 weeks to 3 months to complete a particular piece.

I choose the subject of my artwork based on how visually inspiring it is. In college I was most influenced by the Impressionist school and practiced its style.  Impressionist art emphasizes the visual sensation of art through broken color and controlled brushwork verses the ideology (Subject) of the painting. I strive for this in my artwork by trying to create a visual smorgasbord that draws your eye to something new every time you look at it. The works of Vincent Van Gogh are a particular favorite of mine. His brushwork and vibrant color hold a great source of inspiration for me.
