Artist Ying Fei Mollica, was born and raised in HangZhou, China. She started painting and drawing at a very young age. The beautiful natural scenery of West Lake in HangZhou nourished Ying’s mind and inspired her to begin painting. She used to draw and paint with Xiao Chong Peng and Yi Xu, two nationally acclaimed artists in China.
After graduating from Silk Industrial University, a nationally prominent fashion school in China, Ying sketched decorative oil paintings in HangZhou, along with designing and marketing evening gowns. She’s always had a goal that one day her abstract works would be used in fabric design.
Ying Fei Mollica is a spontaneous painter and she works with most mediums. Ying’s flexible mind and braveness make her work very versatile. She focuses on her creative method of layering of colors and loves illustrating scenes of imagery under valiant light.
Ying’s works have been evaluated and accepted by jurors at exhibitions at the Art School of Mechanicsburg in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania- the most recent on was “The Point of View”. In addition, her paintings have sold at galleries in Atlantic City, New Jersey and HangZhou, China.
Miss Mollica is a spiritual and nature oriented person. She believes “Soulful artists are the richest and this World needs Art”.
