"Molly Kiely...does things with just black ink that most people can't do with the entire color spectrum."
~ Wayne Alan Brenner, Austin Chronicle; June 15 2012
Molly Kiely was born in Northern Ontario two weeks after the release of Abbey Road. She lived in California's Bay Area for 11 years after university, and currently lives in rural Avra Valley, Arizona, where she is renovating a 50-year-old Forester trailer for her studio (until it's ready, she works at the dinner table or on the back porch). She has a school-aged daughter, and was widowed in 2015.
She works primarily with ink on paper. She can often be found oil painting in the Ironwood National Monument, or out of her other 50-year-old trailer, Crooked Sky Studio, in the foothills of the Tortolita mountains.
Molly's comics include the Diary of a Dominatrix and Saucy Little Tart series, published between 1993 and 1997, and the graphic novels That Kind of Girl and Tecopa Jane published in 1999 and 2003 by the Eros imprint of Fantagraphics.
She occasionally does commissions if they tickle her fancy. She does not work for "exposure."
