Miranda’s work and life-long interests have always been food and art. She is a post-graduate of The Courtauld Institute of Art in London and Falmouth College of Art in Cornwall. As a former curator of contemporary art she has worked with artists such as Tacita Dean, James Turrell and Andy Goldsworthy.
Miranda paints landscapes and still-lifes on linen, canvas and deep wooden panels. The paintings are the result of seeing a distinctive feature in the landscape: a crisp line at the edge of freshly mown grass, a new swathe of road cutting through an ancient Devon lane, a tangled band of gorse bordering the top of a field; or seductive produce: velvety figs, a bunch of fresh mint flowers, budding jasmine in a glazed saffron pot or the soft pinch mark on a handmade ceramic cup.
She lives in the Avon Valley in South Devon with her three children and husband.
“My paintings are made-up of thin layers of mixed media - paint, pencil, pastel, charcoal - which result in a very matt finish, like the wall of an Italian fresco. I am equally interested in line and form, and keep re-drawing throughout the process of making the painting.”
They owe much to printmaking methods that I have used at the Working Men’s Club in Camden, London in the 1990s and more recently at Michael Honnor’s printmaking workshop in Dartington, Devon.”
