Over the past two years her work has been about reconstructing and making sense of various relationships within imagery. She focuses on the juxtapositions of colour and form, which have always been consistently apparent in her work. She is intrigued by distortion and ambiguity as she takes on experimental editing to her images.
Recently, Mia has made a conscious effort to reinvent her artwork. This has subsequently steered her towards her biro drawings as it adopts a nostalgic quality of her childhood diary doodles. Although her biro work tends to rely on processes similar to that of chromatography for effect, her intriguing imagery and playful, synthetic colour take on a celestial aesthetic; supernovas come to mind.
Mia does not lay down a pencil outline before starting any piece of work, as she believes this creates a premeditated expectation of the work she is about to embark on. Mistakes, blotches and imperfections are just as much a part of her work as any mark she makes. This being said, her artwork has transcended itself into a form of self-therapy for Mia. The painstakingly fastidious cross-hatching requires patience, confidence and decisiveness, as well as creating a colourful distraction from reality.
