Molly Nixon-Karistinos grew up in a popular beach town at the Jersey Shore, Ocean City, NJ. Upon graduation from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, she worked as a beauty and lifestyle consultant for some of the top luxury cosmetic brands.
From a young age, Molly immersed herself in the arts. She was eccentric, driven by self expression and always walked to the beat of her own drum. She has dedicated countless hours to developing her own creative style through painting, theater, dance, fashion and literature. She exhibits her unique individuality by creating strong pieces that not only convey the hardships of her own life, but those of others as well. The exposure of these judgements and stigmas allow for voices seldomly seen or heard.
Molly currently lives in Westchester, NY, and continues this very personal, poetic and creative pursuit through the use of mixed media to challenge societal norms with honesty and integrity.
