Malenda paints with a touch of the old world masters and the 19th century impressionists. Her aggressive style has bold flowing lines, vibrant colors and stimulating textures that capture the essence of contemporary life. This puts her in great demand by all looking for images for their products. In 1999 she was discovered by an art licensing agency, which worried that her art looked too much like museum art. Today, Malenda’s art is used on products including tapestries, stationary products, calendars, designer bank checks, and tile and stone murals. Malenda has a wide variety of home decor and tabletop products including trays, trivets, and coasters. Malenda’s portraitures of the prominent include golfer Sam Snead, President George W. Bush, US State Senator and Actor Fred Thompson, US Representative Marsha Blackburn, Tennessee Governors Ned Ray McWherter and Phil Bredesen, Tennessee Titans football team owner, Bud Adams, and country music performers, Vince Gill and Amy Grant.

Malenda is one of the most talented artists on Marco! I've visited her gallery numerous times and have done several of her paint nights......which are totally unique from all the other paint nights around! In 2012 I purchased a home that had beautiful murals on the walls. When i found out who the artist was, I had to know more... More

We happened on this studio (and the Local Art Gallery next door) after eating at Lee Be Fish Market (excellent tacos). The art is original and fun - bright colored umbrellas, chairs, mermaids - and the artist in residence to answer questions and share stories of her work. Her tributes to American servicemen and women are particularly moving. Bought a... More

We had eaten and Lee be Fish and decided to check out the local galleries in the same area. I love beach and watercolors and this was a find for me! Malenda was in her studio working her magic on a canvas as we walked in. She was welcoming and very informative about her art. She has a wall of... More

Thanks for the kind words. Malenda has dedicated herself to paint veterans so that their service may never be for gotten. Currently her 18 foot long memorial wall is touring with the SW Florida Chapter of Rolling Thunder on its way to Washington D.C. More

Wonderful gallery to visit with some great pieces but mostly average knick knack feel....So much to see and if you really want an orginal I don't think it would be hard to come out empty handed..affordable pieces avail.....

Malenda tries to have inexpensive items for our visitors, but they are real art. Note that Malenda's primary area of endeavor is large scale art work ranging in price from $2,500 to $10,000 and includes portraits, still life, and landscapes painted with oil on canvas. Everything in her gallery, except for manufactured items she designs, is created by Malenda and... More

Definitely worth a visit. Malenda's highly colored work has a lovely sense of place, and the gallery has a nice sense of authenticity, friendliness and calm. Also more topless mermaid pictures than you can shake a stick at. Which kind of feels necessary, in Florida.

My hubby and I both joined Malenda for her Thursday art class. While hubby was not quite ambitious to go...we both have zero art talent. We had a fantastic time. Hubby wants to do it again. Her instruction and techniques worked for everyone in the class. We ended up with two paintings for our bedroom. We both painted boats, but... More

I found this art gallery by accident; i.e. just milling around after lunch at Petit Soleil, but glad that I did. Malenda was easy to talk to, and I enjoyed learning about her work, The other two galleries on the same floor had a nice variety of work, including some very talented photographers.

Enjoyed the gallery and was impressed by the wide range of styles among the artists. The gentleman working the gallery that day was very friendly and provided great information without hovering. Did not purchase anything that day but if we are in the area again I would definitely check it out again.
