Mary O'Malley received her MFA in 2005 from SVA, New York and her BFA in 1997 from MassArt, Boston.
This piece is part of Mary's Enormous Tiny Art Show #31 collection. "My work begins with a fascination with nature combined with a love of pattern, decoration, and ornamentation. In the ‘Folk Floral’ series, I morph nature with the decorative, creating an alternate “natural” world where flora, pattern, and a maximalist sensibility come together to create a new world characterized by symmetry, bold color and shimmering metallic detail that conjure a fantastical and idealized view of nature."
