Molly Judd, born 1991, is an Irish classical figurative painter who began her studies at the Florence Academy of Art in 2009. The Academy teaches the techniques of the Old Masters, and follows an ideal that demands a return to discipline in art and to canons of beauty. On leaving Florence, in 2011, she decided to further her Academic studies becoming apprentice to world renowned Norwegian painter Odd Nerdrum.


Molly studied with Nerdum at his Atelier in both Norway and Paris  from 2011 until 2013.

Since returning to Ireland at the beginning of 2014, Molly continues to paint  and develop her style from her studio on the top floor of the Chocolate Factory.
