Mollie studied at Goldsmiths College, London, the Open University and Birmingham University. She worked for many years in a variety of schools in the West Midlands. Her work is particularly influenced by African Art and the way it has been interpreted by sculptors such as Sue Hanna and John Maltby.

At present she works mainly at the Midlands Arts Centre and enjoys developing a variety of techniques to build and decorate her work.

Mollie uses crank clay for larger sculptures and porcelain for smaller work. She has previously displayed work at The MAC and the Birmingham Botanical Gardens.
