When describing her approach to painting, Miranda shares, “My works are an intimate expression of my place in the world and can best be understood as an intuitive response to my surroundings.

A raw and honest dialogue of form, colour, memory and landscape together expresses imagery within which I escape from reality.

My paintings provide me with great calm and simplicity in an often-chaotic world.”

This incredible prize is courtesy of Studio Gallery – see it in the flesh at the Habitus stand at Melbourne Art Fair, 17-20 February, 2022.
