MOLLY MARTIN

Illustrator / Artist / Textile repair

Molly Martin is an Illustrator, artist and textile repairer, based in South London. Her illustration work looks at negative space with a simplistic and delicate approach; strong use of line - generally on off white papers. She is drawn to capture the beautifully ordinary moments of life. Work, home, nature, beasts and every day objects; with a tendency to draw directly from life.

As well as her artwork, Molly also works as a professional textile repairer and restorer, specialising in vintage and fragile fabrics. She has worked for egg since 2017 as their personal clothing repairer, collecting customers broken clothes and restoring them in her studio by hand. Molly also works for the slow fashion company Toast and has collaborated with them on three separate repair tours - teaching numerous workshops on the art of repair.
