Miranda Pellegrino is a Rhode Island native and lives in New Bedford, Massachusetts. Since childhood Miranda was determined to be an artist. She was encouraged by her elementary school art teacher to ‘shoot for the stars’. Primarily self-taught, her energy, enthusiasm, and passion for art has never waned. Miranda works as a freelance illustrator and teaches painting lessons. She often works with acrylic or watercolor as well as digital technology to create artwork. Miranda is inspired by modern art and cartoons so she tends to juxtapose her realistic paintings with light-hearted goofy children’s illustrations. Her art is characterized by its vibrant color palettes, high contrast, and bold lighting. With over a decade of college education she has a wealth of knowledge and a unique perspective on art.
Education: BFA in Illustration, AS in Web Design & Multimedia, AS in Fine Art.
