Miranda Skoczek

Happy Saturday! I’m delighted to share these soft, warm, wonderful paintings by Miranda Skoczek with you today. Her beautiful color palette and semi-abstract style… love it! It’s Miranda’s travels and contact with different cultures that gives her lots of diverse inspiration: ‘Textiles, and traditional dress from around the globe, folk art, modernist design, architecture, Islamic motifs and Mughal miniatures, are but a few of the sources from which I borrow.’  

Mirande Skoczek is based in Melbourne, Australia. She has a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting from the Victoria College of Arts, University of Melbourne, and a Diploma of Applied Arts and Graphic Design from the Canberra Institute of Technology. Her website is currently under construction, but you can find many inspirational images by Miranda on Instagram.
