Hello, I'm Molly Duncan and I am a late starter in painting. I am self-taught and since 2016 have participated in some of the most worth-while online courses that were on offer from internationally renowned artists, starting from the basics and these courses would have made up for a 5-year fine art study. My art background previously was folk art to lead lighting, ceramics to slumping wine bottles at my home studio in Perth. So here I am in my third year of teaching abstracts in oil & cold wax medium workshops - I introduced cold wax medium to Cairns and have done 21 workshops to date, and held one major solo exhibition at Tanks Visitor Centre, Cairns.
I have also been a finalist at the Cairns Art Society 2021 Exhibition, and a finalist in 2022 with two highly commended paintings. So I can teach you to paint!!
I would like to thank everyone who have attended my workshops and hope you keep coming to refresh your skills.
Why I created this website
I want to share with you the joys of painting in oil & cold wax medium. You see I've always wanted to paint but had difficulty picking up a paintbrush or holding it longer than a few seconds because arthritis got in the way. With the ergonomic silicone scraper there is less strain on my hand and I can now enjoy painting again. AND YOU CAN TOO! SO DON'T LET HAND CHALLENGES STOP YOU FROM MAKING ART!!
