Mary Anne Molcan is a Canadian visual artist who lives and practices on Vancouver Island. Her love for printmaking and artistic pursuits began at the age of seven after she won a first place award for a drawing at a local fair in Manitoba. Since then, creating art as a communicative practice has been an integral part of Mary Anne’s life and identity. She holds a Bachelor of Arts with distinction from Vancouver Island University in Nanaimo, BC, Canada and has received many awards for her work.
Her practice embraces elements of the natural world which serve as a continual source of inspiration for her imagery. Mary Anne is interested in elevating the unnoticed and invisible through concepts of impermanence, fragmentation, and traces of life left behind.
She currently employs the reductive or multi block processes of Lino printing to build diverse layers of colour and textures within her works. Mary Anne often uses bold colours with common and recognizable geometric shapes to act as a bridge, and to leave space for viewer introspection. Working with small edition sizes, her artworks cater to collectors who desire something exclusive and unique!

My work explores the intersection between the natural world and human values. I live on an island where relationships with ecosystems are magnified by human impact and I question the validity of some of our interactions. Hours of quiet reflection spent within the Vancouver Island ecosystems continue to inspire and inform my work.– Mary Anne
I am attracted to the meditative qualities of hand carving in contrast with the mechanical act of printing. Together these methodologies unearth subtleties beyond what the eye can see and focus on interrelationships between components of the planet and our place within it. I simply love what I do!
