ARTIST PROFILE - MIRANDA JONES
Although red desert sand still runs deep in her veins, Australian born Miranda Jones, has grown to love the wide open skies of her adoptive home in Saskatchewan. Over the years her appreciation for Canadian outdoors and prairie wildlife has deepened to a place of reverence. Miranda’s art reflects the delight of glimpsing a tiny bird amongst the leaves, the surprise and joy of seeing a jackrabbit hiding in her garden or the haunting mystery of owls and coyotes calling at dusk.
Best known for her signature use of colour and metallic leaf, Miranda moves with ease from tiny iconic paintings and personal jewelry to large canvases and welded steel installations. Her art can shift from the realistic to the narrative and symbolic as she strives to capture the essence of her subject matter. Curiosity and a love of mixed media constantly drive her creativity. Her work is widely loved and collected in Canada and abroad and represented locally and internationally in public, private and corporate collections.
Miranda took a giant leap, emigrating to Canada in 1980, living for several years in St. John’s, Newfoundland, where she worked for the provincial Craft Council and pursued printmaking and painting studies. She also discovered the joys and challenges of wilderness canoeing and skiing, skills which have helped her embrace our harsh Saskatchewan climate. She graduated with high honours from the University of Saskatchewan MFA program soon after moving to Saskatoon. Miranda often teaches art classes and works out of a home space and Studio on 20th Artist Collective in Saskatoon. She continues to get outside whenever she can!
