Molly Kuribayashi

Independent Professional Artist/Fine Art Instructor

Molly is a professional artist who focuses onmultimedia artwork with a combination of printmaking and painting techniques. Her work explores composite-like juxtapositions of line, texture, and color to create perplexing and beguiling spatial relationships. Molly finds it impossible to declare a favorite artist, as her list ranges widely from Baroque artist, Piranesi, through many 19th, 20th, and 21st-century “isms”, such German Expressionism, Dada, American Abstract Expressionism, and many others.

Molly is a great believer in the lively power of art, and she loves to convey that positive energy to her students at The Art Studio NY in Edison, NJ. When Molly's students try something new, they are allowed to explore, experiment, push critical thinking, and build confidence, agency, and self-esteem. Molly finds that encouraging students to produce and enjoy art is a wonderful means for them to find focus and relax, all the while, gaining exposure to fascinating principles of art and design. Molly earned her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in printmaking where she studied under the direction of Michael Miller and acclaimed Hairy Who/Chicago Imagist painter, Christina Ramberg. Molly has exhibited her work in numerous group shows and her teaching experience ranges from young children to college level classes to adults. She has also homeschooled her own children and she finds every level and phase of development to be interesting and an exciting challenge.
