Miranda is a visual artist who is fascinated by serendipity, nostalgia and memory.

Miranda’s work uses a wide variety of carefully sourced ephemera, which is endlessly hunted down, gathered together and sorted through. Collage is a hugely tactile process so materials are used both for their visual and tactile qualities…

Miranda is inspired by the domestic, feminine pastimes and childhood memories. Illustrations that transmit knowledge or technical or scientific process are particularly fascinating. Old volumes of encyclopaedias containing carefully selected information are particularly fascinating in terms of defining the world at a certain moment.

Miranda’s work is often analogue in process using the most simple and traditional collage materials such as scissors, scalpels and glue sticks. Simple image transfer techniques are also sometimes used to create a variety of layers which can partially obscure and disrupt meanings…

Miranda enjoys the collaborative process collage lends itself too often participating in collage swaps where artists complete each others collage compositions as well as contributing to online collage collective projects. Miranda curates her work in an online exhibition on Instagram @paperscissorspaste.

Miranda studied Fine Art at The Ruskin School, Oxford University. Since graduating Miranda has worked continuously in the visual arts with young people as a learning and participation specialist working with many cultural organisations both locally and nationally.
