Molly Bounds

Molly Bounds work captures quiet moments suggestive of internal conflict, urgency, complacency or fleeting opportunity. The painter, illustrator and printmaker employs a line both confident and economic, and her portraiture depicts the complexity of her figures’ private thought processes. Bounds creates narrative scenes of domestic life that frequently scrutinize the social conditioning of self-doubt—as well as its effect on the perception of one’s abilities. 


Molly Bounds was born in Texas and raised in Colorado. The artist received a BFA in Printmaking from Metropolitan State University of Denver in Colorado in 2014.

Bounds’ work has been exhibited internationally, including at: Here Gallery in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; Pt. 2 Gallery in Oakland, California; Stephanie Chefas Projects in Portland, Oregon; Nino Mier Gallery in Los Angeles, California; and China Heights Gallery in Sydney, Australia.

The artist is an artist-in-residence at Redline Contemporary Art Center in Denver, Colorado.

Bounds lives and works in Los Angeles, California.
