Laurel Molk

Laurel will be painting one of Jackie Lenth's stunning Sudanese Cows!

Laurel Molk used to sell her drawings to her neighbors. The going rate was a penny a drawing and six for a nickel. Later she went on to pursue drawing at RISD. After many years of freelance work, including designing athletic shoes and athletic wear, and creating windows on Newbury Street, she directed her energy to illustrating and writing children's books. She has published several books and has exhibited in shows at the Society of Illustrators.

In her spare time, Laurel tutors emerging readers in a first/second grade classroom and draws large dragons and spaceships for her local library.

Things she likes include chocolate in any form, dogs, and Paris. She does not like mosquitoes, long meetings, or the color pink (with the exception of pink bubble gum).

The artist lives near Boston with her family, two dogs, a flock of ducks and unfortunately, many mosquitoes.
