About

Artwork

A dramatic contemporary portrait. The figure looks out with an intense, piercing glance, balanced by the soft flowers in her hair and gentle blue sky in the background. Artist Malia Pettit explains that the painting is a progression of both her palette and subject matter. "It has all of the elements of my female portraits - dramatic shadows, bold features and sharp contrasting. However, I contrasted these elements with the crown of soft, whimsical, loosely painted flowers to lighten things up. The painting has a geisha-like feel with the high collar and flowing florals."

Malia Pettit

Pasadena, California

Malia Pettit sees her artistic process as an act of “liberating the paint” and “allowing for the unexpected to occur.” Her portraits of women stem from a fascination with glossy magazines and their portrayal of models, actors and celebrities. Her work has been especially influenced by Chantal Joffe and John Singer Sargent. She currently lives in California after having lived in England for ten years. When she’s not painting, she is a full-time mom and enjoys exploring estate sales, antique stores and used bookstores.

Malia's artwork is beautifully expressive. I have bought two portrait paintings from her and they look stunning together; I love them. The bold strokes and colours are perfect in every setting.

I bought this work just before my husband attempted to buy it for me as an anniversary gift. Some might consider it the gift of the Magi, but ultimately we knew we couldn't live without Victoria.
