Miranda makes collages and the occasional artist’s book. Miranda is fascinated by serendipity, nostalgia, the passing of time and incomplete narratives. Miranda’s work plays on memories real and imagined and her practice draws visually upon times and places where our common memories overlap.

Searching for, seeking out, collecting together and sorting through images and ephemera is a seemingly endless preoccupation. The work is often playful and slightly tongue in cheek but sometimes there is a sense of menace or of a story with an ambiguous ending…
