Born in Monterey California, Molly McCall was surrounded by infamous photographers and the West Coast Landscape tradition. With a family influence in clothing, she began her creative career designing her own label and selling to numerous specialty boutiques including Henri Bendel in New York, Fred Segal in Los Angeles, and Nordstrom, where she was awarded their most favored designer in California.
Molly’s earliest influence on art making came from her great grandfather, an illustrator for the New York Times, and grandfather, a professional watercolorist in Southern California. She started painting and photography at an early age, and later attended Laguna Beach School of Art. After nearly two decades in the clothing business, Molly returned to painting and darkroom photography.
Molly McCall’s work is in various private collections, has been featured in Architectural Digest magazine, and has been in exhibitions across the country, including the Griffin Museum of Photography, the Center of Fine Art Photography, the Martin Museum of Art, The Center for Contemporary Arts, Houston Center for Photography, SohoPhoto, The Image Flow, Center for Photographic Art, and the Museum of the Big Bend. In 2017, Molly will have a solo exhibition at the Center of Fine Art Photography in Ft. Collins, Colorado in December, 2017. She resides in Carmel Valley California with her husband Gordon and their German Shorthaired Pointers.
