the animal as self
When I was in the womb, my father misspelled 'Miranda' on my ultrasound video cassette. My parents decided they liked the typo and ran with it. I feel as though this amusing response has set the tone for the rest of my life. Is it weird? Offbeat? Nontraditional? Alright, let's see where it takes us.
Ever since I was young I've found solace and clarity in nature and animals, so it's only natural that my work portray human emotional depth through animal subjects.
I engage in multiple disciplines and hobbies. My life is an amalgam of art, writing and self-publishing, Vulture Culture (ethical taxidermy and bone collecting), animal rescue group volunteering, and tiny housing/alternative living. All these things are just beads of water on the same spider web, informing each other and enhancing each piece of art I produce. Thanks for joining me on my adventures!
