Molly Martin is an artist who lives and works in London.
Her work looks at negative space with a considered colour palette and a delicate approach to the drawn line. Drawing from life as well as memory, dreams and imagination, Molly creates work around a sense of place, belonging and time.
Molly has also worked as a professional textile repairer and researcher, specialising in delicate fabrics and traditional hand sewing techniques. She has worked as the sole repairer for slow fashion company egg and works in continuous collaboration with TOAST, teaching repair workshops in London and throughout the UK.
Her book ‘The Art of Repair’ (published March 2021 with Short Books) looks at the philosophy, history, and techniques of textile repair, and is accompanied by her original illustrations.
