Miranda Meeks is an artist living and working in Provo, Utah. Miranda’s work, mostly digital, is soft and detailed with a touch of mystery. The haunting atmosphere in her work is explicable when we look at her roots, a story many of us will recognize ourselves in.
As a child Miranda always felt connected to the darker themes. She loved drawing weird monsters as a kid, and was a big Tim Burton fan. To explore other fields she tried to look further in college to find other ways to express herself. Miranda tried out making collages, and drew cartoons with a more fun style. It was then that she realized where her true fascination lay, and she went back to what she found most appealing: a dark, haunting aesthetic.
If you look at Miranda’s work you won’t be surprised to find out she often illustrates book covers: all of her pieces suggest a story. It’s stories that inspired her a lot as well, from her favorite children’s book ‘The Mysteries of Harris Burdick’ by Chris Van Allsburg to the beloved films of Alfred Hitchcock. With every illustration Miranda tells us a story, one that — as she states herself — will not disturb you but shows a place where beauty and mystery can coexist.
