Eliana Miranda is a native Texan who currently lives and makes paintings in Dallas. In 2010, she completed her BA from Hamilton College in Clinton, New York. Miranda’s BA thesis exhibition awarded her the J. Barney Moore Prize and the Emily and Alfred Bohn Prize in Studio Art. She obtained her MA in 2012 and an MFA in 2015 from the University of Dallas. 

Miranda’s work is an exploration of the news media’s portrayal of current social issues. She uses various sources such as, blogs, documentaries, personal stories, images, newspaper and Internet articles. By interpreting these topics through her own visual vocabulary, she hopes to reveal the negative undertones in the news media and open these issues to a wider discussion.
