Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

I visited Malenda's Art Gallery in Marco Island a couple of times over the last 5-6 years. I am always AMAZED at the artwork she does. She is a very Diverse Renaissance Woman! She can create most anything that comes into her head or requested from a client. She does Wonderful Portraits, Landscapes, Stills and I am one of the few that have seen (and own) one of Malenda's abstract paintings from the 1980's. Yes, I have known Malenda a LONG TIME and frequented her art gallery when she was in Nashville, TN and even before that when she was in Houston, TX. Over the years she has done a wide variety of artwork that has drawn a loyal congregant of art lovers that follow her.

She is nestled in the Shops of Olde Marco and this place is worth finding! Malenda is always there creating new masterpieces and welcomes visits to ponder, watch, inquire, chat or peruse the inventory. If a painting is too expensive for your pocketbook, she also has licensed many of her paintings onto products and has some items for sale in the gallery. Stop by and visit. I guarantee you will be happy you did.
