This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following was written by Kent Whipple, art professional from Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Michael Malm's pastoral landscapes are a reflection of his feelings about rural Utah where he lives with his wife and son. "I love the old farm communities and the wide open fields. There is something peaceful about these settings," he explains. Though he enjoys painting the beautiful valley which surrounds him, he is not limited to the landscapes. Malm's paintings often include figures, grazing animals and still lifes.

"I like to keep variety in my work; it keeps me fresh. However, I love doing figures, seeing the way light reflects off the skin and the mystery in each person's eyes, "

Malm's serious study began under Del Parson at Dixie College where he completed his Associate's degree. He went on to Southern Utah University where he had the opportunity to study with Perry Stewart. He has recently completed his Master of Fine Arts from Utah State University where he studied under Glen Edwards. "I feel privileged to have learned from some great artists. Looking at their work keeps me humble, and I am inspired to work harder to improve my own painting."

Having an optimistic perspective about life, Malm's paintings try to capture the uplifting parts of this world. He creates a pleasant mood using light and colors. The way light falls on an object is very important to Malm helping create a calm and peaceful feeling. Malm says he wants his paintings to look like paintings and not photographs, although his work is very representational. He refers to the style he uses as "impressionistic realism".

A top 100 finalist in the 1997 nationwide Arts for the Parks competition, Michael has been involved in numerous shows also been recognized by the Society of Illustrators in New York City.

This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A native of Utah, Michael Malm is a painter of figurative subjects, especially females in western landscape, often with horses. He has achieved his professional art reputation early, being only 22 when he began and getting immediate acceptance in prestigious galleries and winning the Arts for the Parks competition.

He first studied art at Dixie College in St. George, Utah. Malm went on to earn a Bachelors Degree from Southern Utah University, and in 2000 he finished his master's degree at Utah State University. He was a student of artist Del Parson from whom he learned traditional drawing and painting skills and of Perry Stewart an illustrator.

Malm and his wife, Juanita, decided to stay in Cache Valley after graduation, and the couple had three children. Living in a rural area, he paints cattle, barns and figures in landscapes. "His painting reflect his feelings about old farm communities and the beauty of open fields, as he recreates the peace and serenity found in the rural West." (Gillespie 65) His preferred medium is oil and Malm tries to always paint from life. The artist feels the way he illuminates his subjects is the most important aspect of his work.
