Julia Miranda is an East London based painter working intuitively with found materials to investigate relationships between people and spaces. Her approach is predominantly abstract and her conscious concern is with the formal elements of a piece. But in her re-appropriation of wallpaper, bed-sheets and slate, ambiguous narratives unfold, and figures emerge. Julia is currently preparing for collaborative projects in New York and
London and building a new body of painted objects for a solo show at The
George Gallery, Hackney, May 2013.
Izzy is a material inspired designer-maker investigating the physical and emotional relationship we build with non-digital objects and with each other. She enjoys exploring the vast potential of material, from metal to glass through to vegetable matter. Her objects encourage the user to explore their perspective of the everyday.
Izzy graduated from three-dimensional design: materials and critical practice BA at Camberwell College of Arts in 2007. She has since worked with leading interior designers, design fairs and jewelers. She is currently at the Royal College of Art completing her Goldsmithing, Silversmithing, Jewellery & Metal (GSM&J) Masters.
