Zenfolio | Studio Malia | About

Thank you for visiting!  Welcome to Studio Malia.  This is an extensive collection of paintings, photography and collage by Malia.  All pieces you find here are available in print, though many of the original pieces have sold.  If you are interested in a particular piece be it original, print or even on merchandise such as a shower curtain or a duvet cover, please email us!  We do respond to all emails within 24 hours, usually far sooner.


Malia is a  self-taught fine artist, holding a degree in graphic design and photography.  She uses a combination of techniques to create unique and contemporary fine art, available in original, print (from traditional fine art print on archival papers to acrylic and metal) and home decor (pillows, duvet covers, shower curtains and more).

Malia lives in beautiful Golden, CO, with her son, Lucas, and their dog, Sadie. Malia draws her primary inspiration from nature and loves to spend time hiking in the Rocky Mountains.

"While technique can be learned and even mastered, it is not until the artist lets go and allows a piece to move through that the artist is also set free."  (Malia)
