About Mira Nova
"I am inspired by the beauty of nature and the depths of emotion, constantly working on ways to bring them together. I see beauty in darkness, light and in between, so I like to bring it all together when I can. I hope that with my artwork, a sense of connection comes, with ourselves and nature, in that unspoken realm where we see and feel in our truest and deepest ways. To me, this is the place of the sacred, and it means so much to connect with it and be reminded that it is there."
