Welcome! Hello there, I'm Molly!
What inspired Maxe Designs?
~ to see people smile and show them they are appreciated.
~ to inspire and thank those that inspire me every day
~ for my clients (a.k.a. friends) I’ve had the incredible honor to design with and for those I’ve yet to create art for and to design with.
~ I believe everyone should have a piece of art created with them in mind, created to reflect their style and who they are. You are One-of-a-Kind and so is your story!
~ for my son, Andrew, who loves what I do and believes in me.
~ for me, I absolutely LOVE what I do! My passion runs deep!
~ I LOVE ART! I LOVE DESIGNING!
~ I love my clients – it’s bitter sweet when we are finished designing. I am so happy for each of them but sad since our designing for their wedding has come to an end. What’s great is with many of them we’ve done other projects outside of their wedding. Our ideas are endless!!
~ and my list continues…
~ Who is Molly? Please see below.
"MOLLY IS AMAZING!!!!!! She truly loves what she does! She is such a talented artist and made this part of our wedding planning the least stressful.
Molly worked with us to design the most unique and beautiful invitations, incorporating every request we asked from her and even offering us ideas of her own. She is so genuine and truly made us feel so special throughout the entire process.
If I had to do it all over again I would continue to choose Molly, Maxe Designs again and again!"

Who is Molly?
First I’ll start by saying, I’m an open book. Feel free to ask away!
~ I'm a fine artist, designer, graphic designer, mom, sports fanatic and more.
~ I designed for my first wedding client in 2001 while in college, continued designing for weddings on a part time basis while working in the corporate world and jumped into my business full time January 1, 2012. Going into my 6th year full time & I absolutely love what I do!!
~ I grew up in New York (my entire family still resides there), headed to Florida when I was 18 then onto Ohio before settling in the Midwest 15 years ago.
~ I have an amazing son, Andrew, who is 13 and loves to play football, basketball and baseball. He inspires me and makes me laugh every day!
~ We have an American Eskimo named Sadie who is 6 years old and the oldest in our family in dog years. :)
~ My family is very important to me. My friends are also my family.
~ I'm the oldest of 2 daughters. My sister, Lacey, lives in NY and has 6 kids!
~ I've been an artist for as long as I can remember.
~ My parents have always supported my passion for art by letting me create mural's on my bedroom walls. (Yes, the mural's are still there!)
~ I spent many years in the Corporate America before leaving to follow my passion within Maxe Designs.
~ My first 4 years of undergrad were focused on Pre-Law as my major. I realized my heart wasn’t in becoming a lawyer anymore so I went back to my first passion by finishing my degree(s) in Marketing, Art & Design.
~ I took 6.5 years of French back in the day and have yet to make it to Paris!
~ I love to listen to and read books about business, mystery, and those good love & romance stories!
~ I love fitness almost as much as my passion for art. I always have. It’s in my DNA. I think that’s why I’m also a fitness coach since I absolutely love to inspire those who inspire me every day!
~ I’m a runner, cycler, & more.
~ I'm under tall - I'm only 5'2" and the shortest in my adult family. Andrew has outgrown me - Yay!
~ In my youth, I was a competitive gymnast for 12 years along with that I played volleyball, was on the track team (for jumping events), was a basketball cheerleader- I love to watch basketball!
~ I’m a sports fanatic! College Football (Notre Dame Fan through the good and bad), The Cubs, college basketball, the Red Wings, Blackhawks, and more.
~ I’m a BIG fan of the Real Housewives of NYC. Love to watch documentaries along with other TV favorites I have.
~ My favorite color is blue and one of my favorite flowers is a blue hydrangea - the radiant colors, the smell, it's beautiful all the way around!
~ I LOVE to laugh and have fun with everyone I meet!
~ And I have a fear of frogs and a weakness for burgers, fries, and pizza!
