Miriam joined Kettle’s Yard as a Visitor Assistant in 2018 and now works both as a Visitor Assistant and as a Duty Manager.
Previously, Miriam worked as a Project Leader for Cambridge City Council, working with children and families across Cambridge. Prior to that, she ran creative workshops for children in schools in Brighton. She has a BA in Illustration from The University of Brighton and an MA in Children’s Book Illustration from Cambridge School of Art at Anglia Ruskin University. Miriam continues to develop ideas for children’s picturebooks and loves keeping sketchbooks full of experimental and reportage drawings.
Miriam’s favourite part of the Kettle’s Yard house:
I enjoy the range in scale of the artworks in the house and how they reflect the intimacy of the space. I particularly appreciate the little torpedo fish by Henri Gaudier Brzeska in Jim’s Bedroom and the collection of artworks in the cabinet in Helen’s Bedroom that includes a lovely painted box by Ben Nicholson and some small sculptures by Naum Gabo.
