Boylston Street- Wall Two
Originally from Maine, and currently settled on a lovely tree-lined street in Melrose, Jen Moltoni is a collage/mixed media artist and painter with no formal training. She draws inspiration from her numerous trips to beaches throughout New England. Her collage process is simple – she takes pictures of the beach, the sky, found objects, trees, she paints various weights and types of paper, finding joy in the swirling and mixing of color, and then cuts it all up. Her blank canvases then become a playground of form and shape, eventually featuring scenes inspired by nature. She feels that the empty canvas space is as important as the colored pieces of her work. Jen is an emerging artist who regularly shows her work in and around the greater Boston area.
