Dear Diary: Molly Crabapple

Miss Molly Crabapple is not just an artist, but an incredibly impressive entrepreneur and business woman. She’s one of those well rounded people who just totally gets it, knows how to work it AND has incredible artistic talent. (not to mention she’s a total sweet heart). She took us through a day in her Lower Manhattan abode, which is a floor through former factory that feels like a step back in time. In Paris. Or something.

She just closed a successful show, Shell Game, which was inspired by her proximity and subsequent involvement with Occupy Wall Street.

Thanks Molly!

I work with ultra finicky Faber-Castel pins, as well as a bunch of dip crow quills that keep my nails as ink-filthy as a mechanic's

    You’re a very talented artist and you remind me of Morticia from the Adams Family (in a very good way!).
