“… each relationship has great value, and […] there is infinite beauty in every moment of this incredible life.” - from the artist
My name is Molly Shirrell and I am a realist figure painter living in DFW. I strive to convey human forms with emotive color palettes and poses, showing a wide range of emotions clearly through my work. I have found that sitting behind a canvas does not fulfill my need to help others, so I have begun to raise money for suicide awareness and prevention in North Texas, a cause close to my heart. I contribute 15% of my total sales to the American Federation for Suicide Prevention.
I have struggled with anxiety and depression myself and I know firsthand how difficult mental illness can be to overcome or even just to manage. By creating beautiful works of art, I remind myself that every second is precious, each relationship has great value, and that there is infinite beauty in every moment of this incredible life.
I am a traditional oil painter and watercolorist specializing in realistic figure painting. I mostly paint on thick profile canvas.
“The focus of my paintings revolve around human emotions. I use expressive colors to represent my own feelings or projected feelings that I imagine one may feel in each setting of my paintings.” - the artist
