Miranda Gardiner

 

Miranda’s work and life-long interests have always been food and art. She is a post-graduate of The Courtauld Institute of Art in London and Falmouth College of Art in Cornwall. As a former curator of contemporary art she has worked with artists such as Tacita Dean, James Turrell and Andy Goldsworthy.

Miranda paints landscapes and still-lifes on linen, canvas and deep wooden panels. The paintings are the result of seeing a distinctive feature in the landscape: a crisp line at the edge of freshly mown grass, a new swathe of road cutting through an ancient Devon lane, a tangled band of gorse bordering the top of a field; or seductive produce: velvety figs, a bunch of fresh mint flowers, budding jasmine in a glazed saffron pot or the soft pinch mark on a handmade ceramic cup.

She lives in the Avon Valley in South Devon with her three children and husband.
