Misha Malpica (1953-)

Self taught in sculpture, Misha has been creating unique figures for over thirty years.  Recognized for her  realistic sculptures of Native Americans worldwide, she continues to create breathtaking faces with haunting eyes and fascinating faces.  Recently, Thunderbird Artists of Arizona presented Misha with the 2003 Mark Wroe Award of Excellence in Art.  Misha has been the recipient of the 1993 Collector’s Award of Excellence in recognition for her Native American sculpture of Sacajawea.  Misha’s sculptures have also been featured in books and national magazine covers.  Articles about her work have been included in Southwest Art, Ruidoso Lifestyles, Gateway Magazine, and featured artist in Wild West, February 2000. The September 2003 issue of New Mexico Magazine featured Misha’s sculptures in their art section.  The July 2008 issue of Ruidoso Magazine featured the latest body of work from her studio including the “Little People” contemporary figures in clay.

The Hubbard Museum of the American West awarded Misha “Best Artist “in 1998 and includes her work in many of their exhibits and shows.  Work has also been displayed at the Currier Museum of Art, Manchester, New Hampshire and The Wenham Museum in Boston, Massachusetts.  Misha was invited to decorate the White House Christmas tree with her unique sculptures in 1995 and her work is now included in the Permanent Collection of American Artists in Washington DC.
