Overview

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 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....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.

Please note that the important parts of the mermaid images are covered and suitable for all ages.
