How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

Paintings and drawings of nature and landscapes. I am also a printmaker, working with linocuts. Much of my inspiration comes from the wildlife and scenery around me, and in France where I lived for several years. I particularly enjoy observing nature that is often overlooked.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

Being an artist means being me. It is a way for me to express a fascination with and delight in the natural world, and to stimulate interest in my audience. It means freedom to explore and evolve. Every experience is a potential artwork.

Describe what you call yourself/your practice?: 

Miranda Whitten-Walker

Your practice & activities include e.g workshops, teaching: 

During my time as a professional biologist, I undertook science illustration commissions and have had work published in numerous books and magazines, including in the BBC and Oxford University Press. I ran 'sci-art' workshops at Swansea University as a volunteer. As I now concentrate solely on making art, I consider myself an 'emerging artist' in the process of establishing her own studio.

CV & Education, relevant & leading to your artistic practice: 

I am largely self-taught. I have benefitted from various creative workshops and classes throughout the years, most recently night classes in printmaking at Hereford College of Art.

Exhibitions in the last 3 years: 

Research as Art, Swansea (2021)
Marches Makers, Kington (2024)
Crickhowell Open Art Exhibition (2024)
