Miriam Turner


I am an Ilfracombe based artist, with a deep passion for animals and a wonder at the beauty of flowers. I am fascinated with looking beyond the everyday world and it is here in the magic of the unknown that I draw my inspiration.

I love creating abstract textured paintings in celebration of the powerful spirits in animals. Feeling their inner beauty and strength, I create abundantly colourful, vibrant and lively pieces, to portray the amazing energy of their being.

I also create floral abstracts using multi-media to capture the glory and beauty of the wondrous blooms that brighten up even the darkest day.

I use a variety of material in my work, including acrylics, inks, filler and resin and feel great joy when painting each piece. Celebrating the magic and wonder of spirit animals and florals alike.

I have been painting and selling my artwork for over 10 years, having first started out in watercolours, painting detailed animal and scenery pictures. Since then I have grown into expressing my joy and love for animals and flowers alike, in a more’ free’ and ‘expressive’ way.
