About Me

I am a self-taught artist with a lifelong interest in art. I got my degree as a Fashion Designer back in Uruguay, my homeland.

In 1975, my husband and I decided to move to Toronto to build a new life. I had very little time to study and paint; but I promised myself to someday pursue my art and to meet people with the same interests.

About Mira

Born in Montevideo, Uruguay, Mira has always had an inclination for different artistic expressions. At an early age, along with her formal education, she studied pottery, classical piano music, spacial design, painting, textiles and fine art furniture painting. In 1975, with a degree in Fashion Design, she moved to Toronto with her husband. Mira now dedicates her time to what she loves to do best. She has continued her artistic education, developing new techniques through the use of light, color and diverse mediums.

In each piece she creates, she brings her own aesthetic signature by combining varied techniques. The elements that comprise her art, landscapes, figurative, cityscapes, doors, and windows, have a personal meaning as they represent the passage of experiences and the freedom of choice in all human life.

She is a co-founder and has been an active member of Art Gala Forum since 2004, which is a group of six women artists with a Spanish background.

She is also a member of the Oakville Arts Council, Art Gallery of Ontario , Mississauga Arts Council, Visual Arts Mississauga, Neilson Park Creative Centre, Etobicoke Art Group andHumber Valley Art Club.

She has participated in several Gallery art exhibitions in Ontario since 2000 and has being recognised for her work at several juried shows.
