She's taken the design and fashion world by storm; now Miranda Brown is turning her hand to the property industry.
Not surprisingly, the result is striking. She's working alongside architects, interior designers and developers creating large and small scale art to beautify urban environments and interiors. And these installations, from digital prints to lamps and wallpaper, are now on show in the Jasmax entrance hall and mezzanine in Auckland, centred around a bird motif.
“I’m deeply inspired by nature and our connection to all life,” says Brown. “We all need to take some time to cherish life in all its forms and I think this is what comes out in my drawing.”
Brown spent years illustrating for her own fashion label and was commissioned to create a permanent piece of public art for the New Lynn train station in 2009 as well as a temporary installation for Auckland Waterfront in 2011 for the Rugby World Cup.
“Designing public art has provided great experience for me to scale up my art work," she says. "Primarily my focus is to bring beauty and colour into the built environment reflecting nature and culture."
