Most of the themes in Miriam's work revolve around ideas of aesthetics, imagination and symbolism. She often incorporates elaborate perspective in her paintings and her subject matter is normally set within a very defined âspace'. As part of her working process she will sometimes construct elaborate maquettes of buildings and spaces, which then become part of the subject matter for the painting and are treated like a still life.

A particular recent theme being the olive tree, which she views as an almost sacred tree, being so deeply embedded in the mythology, religion and landscape of the Mediterranean.
