Miranda Chapman

Born in the Colchester district of Essex in 1958, daughter of Brian E. Chapman and his wife Gwendoline A. née Nash, who married at Braintree, Essex in 1956. Miranda gained a BA(Hons) in Fine Art from Newcastle Polytechnic in 1980. She married in Colchester district in 1980, Michael George Lambert and, as Miranda Chapman, exhibited at the Ipswich Art Club from Upper Haye Cottage, Fingrinhoe, Colchester in 1980, one picture 'Reclining Nude'. Whilst her four children were young, her work focused on illustration and portraits but later was predominately commissions for murals, particularly trompe l'oeil, and paint effects. Recently she returned to printmaking, especially etching, finding fascination in the processes. Working wherever possible directly onto the plate, her work is figurative and inspired by the human form and the landscapes of East Anglia and she regularly exhibita with the Gainsborough’s House Printworkshop, also as part of the group 4PRINTmakers and has also shown at Elsey's Gallery, Bury St Edmunds; Quay Theatre, Sudbury and Apex, Bury St Edmunds. She still lives in Colchester.
