Meet local teen artist Molly Riggs during Ballard Night In on Thursday March 25 6pm - 7pm:
Molly Riggs (any pronouns) is a youth artist with a focus on digital arts and content creation, video production and editing in the Phinney Ridge neighborhood. Their love for art started with a sketchbook and pencil, and has morphed into more computer based content spanning from digital sketch and animation work using Krita and Ibis Paint X, digital video making and publishing using Adobe After Effects and Adobe Premiere Pro. They dabble in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator from time to time as well. When Molly isn't feverishly sketching away using their Wacom tablet, they are spending time with friends on line, hosting their SMP server for Minecraft, and recording and posting videos on their YouTube channel.

Display artist Lee Harper: My foray into the world of photography began with taking daily snaps on my iPhone as a way to combat the rainy and dark Seattle winters. Next was my “gateway camera”, a point and shoot. From there it was game on and I was addicted!
I am drawn to shape and texture, light and line. My photography is an eclectic blend of abstraction and concentration; representational photos of the natural world are counter-balanced by pictures with deliberately shifted perspectives and focal points.
Last year, I completed the Summer Intensive Program at the Rocky Mountain School of Photography in Montana. I fell in love with the art of printing. Watching my art come to life is as enjoyable as taking photos.
I have exhibited in several group shows at community art galleries, and individual shows at local coffee shops, bars, and restaurants in Seattle and Camano Island.
