I'm FALON MALEC
AKA The Awkward Artist
When I'm not in my studio spilling paint onto whatever artistic medium I'm digging that day...
You might find me recharging in nature collecting feather and rocks, walking the fur baby, fostering dogs, reading the latest Margaret Atwood or Neil Gaiman marvel, writing my next book or recording a new podcast episode.
Life's a garden man, ya dig?
Play. Get Wild. Let Your Inner Weird Out!
Have no fear your inner weird is here. I know, it's super corny but it still rings true. You are awkward for a reason and it's no secret that it's your greatest strength. I know because I've used mine to fuel my art. Art always brought joy, made me laugh and supported me in processing some seriously difficult life lessons...
And here we are...
3x Best Selling Author, Writer, Painter, Self-Proclaimed Weirdo and Artist.
Those pesky life lessons felt terrible moving through them, but they've also lead me to empower those around me and to connect with some really rad women around the world.
I was this close *squeezes fingers together* to giving up, thinking my art would only ever be appreciated by friends and family.
Staying true to myself, staying hopeful and letting my awkward shine was the best thing I could have ever done.
I have to pinch myself when I see something that I drew on the cover of a best-selling book (what is my life?!)
