Molly Bounds is a printmaker, and muralist living in Denver. She received her BFA in printmaking in 2014 from Metropolitan State University of Denver. Heavily influenced by abstract storytelling within alternative comics and zines, her work derails the common narrative of insecurity as a right of passage into womanhood. Through female portraiture and a personal lexicon of symbols, her work calls into question the psychological training of doubt that undermines those working to gain agency in determining their futures. Currently, Bounds is exploring the complexities of internal dialogue surrounding the act of watching, doing, and taking up space.
