Miriam Slan

Painting, Booth 1014

Miriam is an artist whose contemporary acrylic paintings are inspired by nature, both landscape and garden themes. In both cases she enjoys the challenge of portraying its intricate patterns, textures and rhythms. Over the past few years Miriam's work has developed a new-found freedom of expression and a movement towards a more abstract translation of the world around her. Her large and small canvasses are a celebration of her love of colour. She likes to avoid literal representations of her subjects and instead seeks to reinterpret them giving the viewer enough information without over stating it. She is an elected member of The Society of Canadian Artists.
