Colorado's Women in Art Showcase: Part 1
Posted on September 23 2018
Originally from St Petersburg, FL, Whitney chose wanderlust after graduating from the Savannah College of Art and Design with a BFA in Photography and a concentration in post-production. After spending a few years in the woods of California, she set her sights on Denver and has yet to look back. Her work has been proudly shown all over the United States, now including our little shop here in Denver. Completely moved by the human silhouette, she spends her time studying faces of people that inspire her and turning them into works of eccentric art plucked from the psychedelic world that inhabits her brain.
Some of you may know Morgan Mandala as the counterpart and collaborator to Randal Roberts' artwork and love life, however, she is a visionary all on her own. Morgan was born and raised outside of Chicago, Illinois but has called the front range of Colorado home for over a decade. She is most recognized for live painting, circular canvases, and imagery of fantastic naturalism combined with geometric forms.
The Texas-born painter re-rooted here in Denver on her chase for nature and beauty. Though "nature cannot ever be made better" in Molly's eyes, she uses anything and everything Gaia to inspire her. Her main medium is abstracted animals and backgrounds with oils on large canvases, both separately and integrating the two together. Drawing inspiration from her surroundings her goal is to evoke emotions in people, usually those of happiness and joy through her artwork.
As Molly says, "bless the world you are in with your gifts and love those around you."
