Malia is a teenage artist who lives in my neighborhood. I’ve know her since she was a young girl, and I’m so impressed with her talent that I’m sharing it with you today. In addition, she does work by request, as you’ll see below, and she would welcome doing a family portrait for you. Here’s what she did for my family.
She has created many other portraits for people in my neighborhood and her friends and family. They are all gorgeous with intimate details (like my freckles and my daughter’s freckles) that make them charming and recognizable. Here are a few.
She has also drawn LDS temples. Here are some samples of those.
If you are interested in her work, and would like to request a drawing based on a family photo of your own, please contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Her pricing is a steal.
A 9 x 11 family is $15-20 depending on the number of people in the picture (six or more is $20).
A 9 x 11 temple is $25.
An 11 x 15 family $25-30 (6 or more people is $30).
Last, but not least, is the adorable portrait she drew of her own family. They are some of my favorite people, and I’m lucky to have known them for the last 14 years.
Malia is for sure very talented! I guess she is using water colours and black ink, which give to her drawings such an exquisite texture of softness and simplicity.
Thank you for sharing :-)claudine
You’ve described her work perfectly!
Wow! These are pretty good! What a great talent for a girl her age.
I think she’s pretty amazing!
Unique artistry. I like it. Where did you hang your family portrait?
I have it on a shelf in our dining area!
Wow. Those are amazing. And, what a great way for her to get some business experience (and some extra cash).
I know! It is so neat that she does this.
What a talented artist! She really has an eye for colour. Great work!
Love her and her artwork!
What a great talent she has! 🙂
Thanks for doing this, Em. I liken this to Malia being featured on “Oprah’s Favorite Things” episodes. 🙂 You’re a gem.
Ha! I’m glad I have Oprah status in your eyes. Malia is amazing!
Just delightful. What a budding talent.
Her work brings a smile to my face.
