About Malinee's Playground

Welcome! Thanks for visiting.

I'm Malinee Ganahl, artist and creative spirit. I am thrilled to share my art and creations with you.  My art is broadly categorized into two collections:

The Playground
Drawing, painting, illustration, design

This art tends to be bright and whimsical in style, with some influence from my geeky interests.

Fields of Vision 
Photographic art 

These digital photo paintings tend to have more classic subjects & style.

Here on Patreon, I'll share updates of current projects as well as goodies from the archives.  And probably random tidbits from my life. This is still a new adventure for me, so I'd love to hear your suggestions.  What would you like to see me share?  Let me know by commenting here.

Thank you

I am profoundly grateful to all my friends, fans, and patrons.  Thanks for being here (whether or not you support financially).  Your love and encouragement keep me going.

Patron Rewards

I make art for the joy of it, but a girl's gotta eat (and pay the bills, help support the family, pay for the kid's college, etc.).  After parting from my last "real job" due to illness, I decided to focus my time and energy toward making art my business.  I'd love to make this my full-time gig for good!

You can help by joining my patron community with a monthly membership. Here's the info on what you'll get in return:

  • Cheering Champ($1 per month): lots of love and virtual hugs from me!  Oh, and patron-only content including coupon codes for my online shop.

Solid foundation.  Reaching this point lets me know that we have a strong start to this community of folks who believe in me and my art.  

I'll come up with some way to celebrate with everyone.  Be on the lookout for polls to let me know what you want!
