Molcan, Mary Anne
Mary Anne Molcan was born in Kristapinanihk, which in Cree translates to ‘Great Meeting Place’. Located along the shores of the North Saskatchewan River, it was a place of social gatherings for ceremony and trade. She feels very grateful to now live, work, and play on the ancestral lands of the Snuneymuxw Coast Salish people in the valley beneath Wakesiah.
When she is not welcoming people to the gallery, she is a local artist with a current focus in two-dimensional media: printmaking, drawing, and painting. She holds a BA in Visual Arts with a minor in Psychology from Vancouver Island University. Her practice explores the intersection between the natural world and human values.
She also loves to write and has published a story called ‘The Strength of Vulnerability’ in Chicken Soup for the Soul.
