Narrative whispers have always permeated the imaginary worlds Mirry created. Her fascination with the interplay between darkness and light, combined with a love of narrative, is at the heart of all the work she undertakes.

Whilst studying Fine Art Sculpture at the University of Brighton, her work evolved in various forms comprising drawing, soft sculpture, animated theatre and large-scale light, sound and time-based installations. 

Since those venturesome Art School days, Mirry moved back to The Big Smoke where she worked as an Artist in Residence at The Arts Depot Gallery, produced and directed animated theatre and films for Les Marionettes Festival, Paris, and choreographed performance art shows alongside Marvin Gaye Chetwynd at Frieze, The Royal Academy of Arts and Tate Britain.

Undoubtedly all these endeavors have worked their influence on the illustrator she is today.
