Teri Malo




Teri Malo's childhood centered around dairy farms and woodlands in Central Massachusetts. Her interest in nature reflects her childhood playing outside both in the woods and on the farms, and helping with the family’s part-time business raising chrysanthemums and lettuce. A sense of wonder and delight permeates all her responses to nature, as seen in her paintings.


Ms. Malo graduated from Emmanuel College and received her MFA from the University of Massachusetts, where her passions centered on printmaking.


Ms. Malo’s most recent work focuses on elemental themes from nature – water in all its forms, air, granite, forests, and nearby gardens. Using photography to record her daily walks, Malo pieces together composite views of her favorite places, capturing the essence of each location. Sometimes the result is a “view” in its entirety, while at other times the paintings are more like a pieced quilt of close-up details recomposed into a more abstract memory painting.  The paintings utilize techniques borrowed from her studies in printmaking, watercolor and oil painting.


Ms. Malo’s works are in a number of collections, including the DeCordova Museum, Newport Art Museum, The Blackstone Group, Ritz Carlton Hotels, Marriott Hotels, Baystate Medical Center, St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center, Parmenter Hospice, Bryant College, Otis Elevator, and numerous private collections.
