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, taking time and, allowing the natural flow of my materials to take the lead.
The repeated marks and gestures work together like a converstion. By painting marks that speak to each other, I can create a visual journey for the viewer. I am particularly interested in the quality of the marks I make and how they can lead your eye around the canvas.
The journey of a painting is reflected in finished piece. They are both calming and energising and can provide a much needed moment of peace and reflection.
It is one of the ecstasies of painting - this independence of the hand from the brain. Patrick Heron
