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.
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, I’m 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
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.
