Molly Brandenburg began drawing and painting as a child. Her main art instruction came through her parents, Muriel and John Brandenburg. Her father, Dr. John Brandenburg, was a physician, WW II veteran and painter, and she spent much of her childhood in his art studio, painting and drawing along with him. She also studied character animation with Mike Giamo of the Walt Disney Studios and her friend, the late Joe Ranft, of Pixar Animation. Molly's cartoons can be found in her books, THE TRUTH ABOUT CATS and EVERYDAY CAT EXCUSES, now available on www.Amazon.com. Molly is also a featured cartoonist, 'Best of Houzz 2013' award winner on the interior design website, www.Houzz.com (http://www.houzz.com/pro/molly-brandenburg/molly-brandenburg).
