"I fell in love with Molly's art the moment I saw her amazing realistic nature paintings at the Maryland Home and Garden Show a few years ago.  Since that time I have purchased three of her paintings and I couldn't be happier.  Her ability to capture fur and feathers is unlike anything I have ever seen.  I intend for my collection to continue to grow!"  Jeff Buchheit
