About

Mixed media art & upscale upcycling created for one of a kind people and their homes!

I grew up around art and antiques. My father was a "picker" -- he searched out antiques and sold them for a living. I search out old objects and incorporate them into new works of art. This has sometimes caused much distress for my father, but isn't that the way?

But I believe in managing my impact on our environment, and so using existing materials to create just makes sense to me. That's why all of my work is produced from found objects and other recycled and natural materials.

I'm inspired by history, storytelling and whimsy -- and by my seaside New England roots -- and hope this is reflected in my work. I also have a streak of New England practicality that means my work extends to up-cycling, recycling and creatively restoring worn, discarded and vintage boxes into functional art. I sand, repair, hand paint, collage and embellish my works with some of my favorite objects like vintage buttons, old maps and sheet music, letterpress block letters, antique pie tins, and old advertising rulers.

    I'm Karen Malcolm, a mixed media artist. I work with natural and found objects, paper and acrylics to create 3d constructions and works on canvas. I'm influenced by my seaside New England roots and an irreverent fascination with all things old.

Welcome to Malcolm Studio Shop! My found object art and upcycled boxes are one of a kind. I strive to produce my work with a high level of craftsmanship, while allowing myself freedom to experiment and to get lost in the details of each piece. Collage and assemblages are hand constructed. Boxes are made beautiful and useful again after being found damaged, worn or discarded.

Your satisfaction is important to me! If for any reason you are dissatisfied, please do not hesitate to contact me; I will be happy to work something out.

Thanks to those who support handmade and those that have featured my work on their blogs, most recently www.feministreview.blogspot.com and http://papierblue.blogspot.com/2009/05/artist-with-story-karen-malcolm.html

For Custom orders I require a 30% deposit up front before I start the project. Rest of payment is due upon completion of the item. Personlized boxes (that include an individual's name or other identifier) are not refundable.

I do my best to quote my customers a price for their custom orders, but please know that there are a lot of factors that go into each piece such as time (for more detailed requests), materials (for instance type/size of box), etc. And so, the price may go up or down depending on your custom requests.

Custom orders will take up to 5 weeks to complete before shipping. If you are placing a custom order for a gift or have a certain date that you need it, please allow a minimum of 5 weeks for production time and shipping.
