When asked about this graphic contemporary portrait of a tiger, artist Miranda Gamel shared this poem:
He is Royalty.
He glows and shines,
illuminating the path to true and pure.
His words are a soft breeze, and a hurricane, all at once.
He is fierce but gentle Love
He is yours, and you are His
Queen Creek, Arizona
The daughter of two artists, Miranda Gamel grew up with artistic aspirations. “When I was young, I couldn’t imagine that I would be anything else… it only seemed natural,” she says. She further developed her skills with her teachers John and Elli Milan. Miranda’s paintings exist on the edge of the surreal and the fantastical while remaining grounded in human emotion. Each painting, through its dynamic imagery, conveys the spirit embodied by the composition’s subject. Miranda’s ultimate goal is to portray each individual “being their true, raw, authentic self.”

The highest compliment that I can give Ms. Gamel is that I intend to buy another one of her works! I like her take on tigers using an approach that may be Basquiat (or not). I find it very effective and attractive art.- J Bosley
This work was more beautiful than I could have hoped. Very happy.- J KOTVAN III
The color in here is gorgeous—and slightly more subtle than the photograph suggests. I love the sense of movement, intimacy, and passion in this work.- C Linehan
