About Me

Nanci Miranda in glass

My passion for creating art is insatiable. Drawing inspiration from the world around me, I am constantly searching for new ways to express the inner universe that exists in my imagination.

My journey as an artist has been fascinating. At the the age of 50, I became chronically ill. Unable to walk even a short distance without having to fall fast asleep to recover my energy. This lasted for a year of my life. During the summer of this difficult time, I spent 2 months laying in my backyard on a lawn chair recuperating. One day as I lay there, I felt I had reached my limit. I called out, "Enough, I can't take this anymore. I want my life back!" Suddenly my vision changed. I could now see in 3D. Colours were more dynamic and everything in front of me had enhanced dimension. Never having touched a sketch pencil or paint brush in my life, I felt I could draw the view in front of me. I grabbed my daughters yellow school pencil and a lined paper, the only drawing tools in the house. I drew what I had been staring at over the summer. A set of stairs from my deck and a bicycle. The sketch had perspective and shading.

This initial experience allowed me to question if I could now paint, as I was being drawn to attempt this new skill. My first portrait was of my daughter when she was a baby. (shown here). It became clear to me that this gift was much more than I had imagined. The journey that followed has had me learn to trust this gift of being an artist. Always showing me which colour pallet or medium to create with, whether acrylic, oil, pastel or watercolour. 

My goal with this gift is to share it with others to bring joy to their lives and to show them that everything is possible, if they just believe.
