"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 (in a fountain pen!) on paper, and with raw pigments on illustration board and canvas. She sometimes works on skin.
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 contributed six pieces to the The Graphic Canon, Volumes 1 - 3 published in late 2012 and early 2013 by Seven Stories Press.
Here is a time travel story from 2014. Don't look at it at work or with rugrats in the room.
She rarely does commissions or editorial any longer unless they tickle her fancy.
