Darcy Scanlon Moulton, Guest Artist Issue 9 Darcy Scanlon Moulton is an emerging artist living and working in Ipswich, Massachusetts. She was educated at Montserrat College of Art, Randolph-Macon Women’s College, and the Harvard Extension School. Her work is in a broad range of mediums including charcoal, pastels, graphite, ink, acrylics, and watercolors. Inspired by humanity’s codependent and often abusive relationship with nature, she uses single subject realism and expressionistic landscapes to draw on both the magic and tragedy in them. Her work is held in private collections throughout the United States, and recently exhibited at the John James Audubon Center’s Gallery in Pennsylvania, The Arabella Gallery in Beverly Massachusetts, and The LemonTree Gallery in Ipswich, Massachusetts.
