Mira M. White , artist and instructor, is an award winning painter with an exhibition record both domestic and international, and has been an art instructor for over 30 years. She has organized and conducted numerous workshops in Pastels, Watercolor and Mixed Media, including several painting workshops in France. She received the Grand Prize at the prestigious Rocky Mountain National Aquamedia Exhibition in 2001 and was presented in Watercolor Magic, winter 2002. Her love affair with painting has always been directed by a love of light. This preoccupation with luminosity has served as a connecting thread between all of her works, be them still life, landscape, figure or her personal myth imagery paintings. Her working methods vary according to medium and subject, but, generally, she has a multi-layered approach. Process and play with materials is extremely important to this artist. Work may begin from simply pushing paint around, from a sketch, photo or from visual memory, but the work evolves and changes until a tight visual structure exists that delights her eye as in a visual dance. She tries to convey mood through a rich, vibrant color system and wants the viewer to enter into the paintings and enjoy the dance. Mira lives, works and teaches in Northern California in the San Francisco Bay Area.
