After many years of pursuing a career in Children's Illustration, Mia initially turned to canvas painting as a means of de-stressing from the demands of the illustration field, and to try a medium that was more fluid and forgiving than pen and gouache. She knew immediately that she had found a new passion.

Mia's love of photography, of capturing light and life, helps her to freeze moments into a photograph which she then uses to paint from. Mia enjoys many genres of oil painting, including portraiture, still life and landscape. Mia finds real joy in setting up a still life and playing around with it until she finds the perfect light and composition. She believes her still life paintings are a celebration of domestic joy… a full fruit bowl, a bunch of cheerful flowers. Her life portraits depict children, pets and families captured in natural, unposed moments. Her paintings are always a celebration of joy and the beauty of life.

Mia started working her art as a career just last year. In 2012, Mia entered 4 art prizes and had a win in two of these, which is a remarkable accomplishment. Mia won the People's Choice Award at the Mosman Park Art Awards in 2012 for her painting of three children playing on a jetty, titled, Look Before You Leap. She also won the Animal Art Awards held at the Perth Art Expo in 2012. Her winning painting, Girl's Best Friend depicts the love of a child for her dog.

Mia writes weekly about her 'Life at the end of a paintbrush' on her blog/website and Facebook art page where you can also view her gallery.
