Is an Artist based in Oxnard, California


Miranda Magaña is a self-taught artist born and raised in Oxnard, California. She is currently a student at UCLA, majoring in Spanish and Portuguese & Brazilian Studies. When she is not studying, she is often playing her guitar, the piano, or working on her paintings. She enjoys working with all mediums- digital, musical, watercolors, acrylics, paper mache, and more.



I grew up as a musician. For many years, my hands and fingers slid across the black and white keys before I ever decided to start painting. Somehow, this new medium of paints came so naturally. I saw the complimentary colors as harmonies. The rhythms, tones, and melody flowed through me. My art is a reflection of the music I played for many years. Some days, I feel jazz, other days, I feel a waltz within me.
