About the Artist
The artist eye has come easily for Mally Weaver.
Attracted to the Florida Keys by the stunning color & strong light, she has always been a colorist, even as a student at Temple University, Tyler School of Art.
“Some scenes just demand to be captured.”
Her early training was in oils & acrylic painting, drawing, design, print making & sculpture - earning degrees in Fine Art, Art Education & Special Ed.

When she learned to sail, she incorporated Plein Air watercolor painting. This allowed her the portability & immediacy to capture those “demanding scenes” while traveling.
Since then she has joined the Florida Keys Watercolor Society & was awarded the Best of Show in 2005.

She studied watercolor technique with Frank Francesse & Karen Leffel-Masengil, which has had an effect on her watercolors – beautiful large washes & a spontaneous joy of painting shows. She still enjoys detailed work & usually is commissioned to paint several works each year, both architectural & portrait work.

With her partner, Thomas H. Avery she spends hurricane season in the mountains of NC., where she is a member of the Ashe Co. Art Center & has been juried into their Best of the Blue Ridge Show.

In Florida, her work can be viewed at the following galleries:

The Guild Hall Gallery – 614 Duval St. Key West
The Key West Art Center – 301 Front St. Key West
Artists In Paradise – in the shopping center on Big Pine Key
