Miriam had a love for painting and drawing throughout childhood; she began devoting more time to developing her style of painting following her youngest child starting school.
Now several years have passed she has exhibited across Worcestershire, where she is based, and also at the RBSA in 2013. Miriam has received positive responses to her paintings, selling throughout the UK via galleries, online and directly to private buyers from her studio in Worcestershire.
Working with acrylic, her semi abstract paintings are inspired by the sky and it’s ever changing colour and movement. Whatever the time of day or the time of year, as the light changes, the sky provides endless ideas for new material. More recently, her work has developed, being inspired by natural landscapes.
Miriam’s paintings gain a depth through layers of paint. Texture is introduced with the use of a palette knife and occasionally the addition of other media. The paintings evolve as each layer is applied.
The use of translucent mediums accentuates the light and the paint is allowed to have a freedom of movement across the canvas. Whether it is vibrant or a gentleness in the light depicted, each painting has a journey and a story of it’s own.
