Artist Description

Amongst many things, Shelly Malkin is an environmentalist and has worked on behalf of numerous environmental causes, including the New York Restoration Project and the Natural Resources Defense Council. She is also an avid outdoors woman with a passion for skiing and rock climbing that has taken her all over the world. The natural landscapes that she experiences on her adventures often provide an almost divine inspiration for her paintings; her large-scale watercolors sensitively combine mica and iridescent pigments to create sweeping panoramas that are simultaneously intimate and vast. As she says, “I don’t plan each piece beforehand, and I don’t really know what will be the end result, but the journey is exciting.”

Shelly Malkin grew up in New York City and attended the Dalton School. She graduated from Princeton University with a degree in Art History and a minor in European Cultural Studies, and went on to teach at the Nightingale-Bamford School in New York. She studied painting at the School of Visual Arts and the National Academy of Design under Serge Hollerbach in New York City, and at the Silvermine Arts Center and the Renaissance Workshop of Dmitri Wright in Connecticut. She is a member of the Advisory Council of the Princeton University Art Museum.

Malkin has participated in group shows at the National Academy of Design and at the Greenwich Art Society and has had a number of solo shows at Arcadia Gallery in Old Greenwich and at the Audubon Gallery.
