Malinda Prud’homme is a talented Mixed Media and Portrait Artist that uses a variety of media to portray her passions. Her subject is the natural beauty found in our world. Whether she chooses to depict this with people, places, things, or abstract expression, her pieces always exude beauty and classic elegance.
Malinda was raised in a warm and loving environment that promoted visual art as an integral part of life. At age four she happily returned home from school and asked her mother, “Mommy guess what I’m going to be when I grow up?” When her mother asked she replied,“An Artist, Madame Cheff told me that.” It seems that even her kindergarten teacher knew she would have the skill to become a remarkable artist.
Malinda’s style is heavily influenced by the artists of the Renaissance period including Botticelli and Michelangelo. As they did in the past, her creative process begins with inspiration and is then executed with techniques that result in a high level of realism. She believes the time focused toward a piece and the immaculate detail achieved is one of the aspects that make her artwork so impressive.
More often than not, Malinda can be found in her comfy little studio in Toronto's Art & Design District. When she is not creating works of art she is likely cuddled up with a good book and her big cat Maverick. She is also an avid traveler and has already extensively travelled throughout Europe and has volunteered in South America.
Malinda hopes to further her art career by creating artwork that expresses passion filled messages. She wishes that her viewers gain a sense of warmth and peace from her work.
