LaVanda Mireles studied painting and drawing at Regis University in Denver, Colorado. In 2016, LaVanda moved to Grenada with her husband who is a medical illustrator at St.
George’s University School of Medicine. LaVanda is not a photographer, yet now works
primarily in the photographic medium, cyanotype. LaVanda applies her drawing and
painting skills to create a new approach to this traditional process. Currently, her work
depicts faces behind lenses, otherworldly figures and sacred feminine themes. LaVanda is a volunteer instructor for the Grenadian alternative art school, Art School Greenz.
