Miranda Pikul is currently earning her B.A. at the University of California, Los Angeles in studio art. Her focus explores the psychology of behavior while asking questions about mental health and human’s need for connection. Miranda’s work has been exhibited in galleries such as The Wonderstone, Back-Fence Society and The New Wight.


Themes balanced in my work walk between human’s need for close, intimate relationships and our conflicting reality of living with social anxiety. Through narrative exploration I capture moments of interaction between family, partners, and strangers that are familiar yet awkward and uncomfortable. Questions often raised examine how isolation and feelings of loneliness influence our ability to maintain and build healthy, meaningful relationships in the modern world.
