Miranda is based in North Wiltshire where she creates striking and decorative paintings which explore the different qualities of line, colour and medium. She takes inspiration from the rhythms of nature and wide open spaces.

I paint by letting go of expectations and allowing the natural flow of my materials take the lead. 


Each painting has its own individual path and the end point is only clear when the balance of light, colour, line and shape is in harmony. 


I paint and draw simultaneously. Adding, concealing, and revealing lines and gestures like a conversation. Each mark responding to its previous. By painting marks that speak to each other, I can initiate a visual journey for the viewer. They lead the eye through the painting, inviting them to participate in their own personal interpretation. 


There are references to my love of landscape and nature but beyond that their meaning is fluid. 

It is one of the ecstasies of painting - this independence of the hand from the brain. Patrick Heron
