Miranda graduated from Oxford Polytechnic with a degree in Visual Studies and History of Art, during which she was first introduced to bookbinding. After a short career in visual merchandising and a much longer career teaching art to children, Miranda came back to bookbinding.
She has been a student at Studio 5 with Mark Cockram for many years. Miranda is also a keen printmaker using a variety of printing methods including etching, linocut and monotype. She uses her prints for endpapers, book covering and artists’ books.
She was elected as a Licentiate of Designer Bookbinders in 2022 and has won several prizes for her books. Miranda’s bindings are held in several private collections and also at the British Library. She now spends her time working on fine bindings for competitions and commissions. She is looking forward to new projects and the opportunities that becoming a Licentiate will bring.
