Malynda Forcier was born and raised in Massachusetts and relocated to New Hampshire as an angst filled teen. In 1994 she completed her condensed studies at Rhode Island School of Design. In 2001 she earned a degree from Chester College of New England. She rounded out her formal education with many years of study, apprenticeship, collaborations, and experimentation with countless variations of medium, architectural, and design projects.
Malynda has worked at several photographic labs throughout NH and has helped many people reach their photographic potential through her knowledge and expertise.
Having fulfilled most of her goals in the photographic medium, she is creating with different mediums and is now exploring her heritage through the use of old family textiles.
Over the years, the works she has created were close to her heart, influenced by friends, family and the places she has visited. As the years have progressed, the people and places have begun to become more varied and exotic, representing a growing passion for long term travel. Her passion for the visual arts has created a wanderlust that grows with every passing day, as does the desire to capture the spectrum of feelings and scenes that exist around this fragile world.
“I have been fortunate to have had the opportunity to spend my life as a free individual and I know that as my journey continues, my work will reflect that freedom.” When not traveling she resides in the breathtaking White Mountains of New Hampshire.
In 2011, Malynda conceived & executed her plan of opening The Gatehouse Gallery in Chocorua/Tamworth, NH. The Gallery was tiny space in which she and her husband consulted and created custom websites surrounded by inspiring works of art. The Gatehouse Gallery closed in 2015 but she thankfully has found a new Arty home and has enjoyed being a Board Member of the unbelievably talented group at Chocorua Creative Arts Center & ArtWorks Gallery.
Malynda is now looking forward to spending her artistic energy on different outlets and media. “I hope that you enjoy my work. May it bring you positive emotions.”
