Mia's work explores self-portraiture and performativity. The artwork revolves around Mia's perception of herself and how she fits into the world around her. The performance element comes into the work as Mia finds interest in the making process as much as the final result.
The content of Mia's work looks into femininity, as she challenges how the female body can be presented in a light that steers away from being viewed as a sexual object. The colour scheme is a range of blues, black and white. These colours are used because they are not stereotypically considered as feminine.
Outside of her degree, Mia creates portraits which stem from her enjoyment of painting. The subjects used stem from current interests, such as musicians or actors that inspire her.
