After completing my studies at Grennan Mill Craft School my early work consisted of paintings on silk, velvet and cotton using batik, tie dye, silk screen and patchwork. In the 90’s I opened a gallery of my work called Deelerious and subsequently had a showroom called Miranda’s Room above an interiors shop in Waterford. I went on to create vivid paintings on canvas of stars, moons, planets and flowers. I used gold, silver and copper leaf in my work as well as jewels, gems and buttons. I used many different application techniques and had several successful solo exhibitions.
My current work is painted directly onto the surface of glass. I have had a few pop up shows of this work and have been encouraged by the positive response. They’re vibrant and happy pieces, often featuring flowers, hearts and abstract shapes. I now have a range of hardwood frames being produced at a local joinery that means I can produce larger paintings on toughened glass to order. Oh and I also enjoy painting on rocks!
I love to take commissions so if you’d like me to create something special for you have a look at our ‘Art to Order’ page. I always have a range of my work on display in the studio here so you are welcome to make an appointment to see my work first hand.
My work forms part of the Waterford City Municipal Art Collection, the Waterford Institute of Technology Autobiographical Collection and the Waterford Teachers Association Art Collection. My work hangs on walls in every corner of Ireland and beyond.
