Molly and Maud
Denise Liebermann and Wendi Weller - Two Artists Mad About Dogs: From a conversation about a collaboration during lockdown and a shared passion for painting and dogs, Molly and Maud was born. Determined to come out of lockdown with something brand new and positive, they got to work setting up the business and now produce dog paintings, drawings, prints and cards in addition to running workshops and taking commissions.
Inspiration: For The Love Of Dogs
Each works in their own studio, in their own quirky and contemporary style, using mainly oil but various other mediums too. They create art that not only conveys the love and companionship dogs so freely give us, but also spotlight the old, the overweight and the weary of our canine friends – warts and all, Molly and Maud love each and every one of them!
Sculpting woodland creatures and dogs in British wool using a single barbed needle. Many hours creating life like forms with a twist of humor
New work added to this year’s portfolio includes drawing and paintings using a multitude of mediums including tissue paper, inks, water colours, charcoal and pastels
Animals mainly dogs and once again a sprinkling of the same element of humor where possible.
I create block and screen print using my drawn designs. The design is then transferred and carved into a lino block. I will hand-print, sometimes using more than one block, I use permanent fabric paints and dyes to create the surface pattern.
I nearly always use linen as I love the ‘slubby’ texture and the way the design sits on the surface.
I create short runs of printed fabric usually with a specific project in mind
New work added to this year’s portfolio include mixed media drawings and paintings and limited edition prints – an exciting addition for 2020!
