I’m inspired to capture the beauty and essence of what is real while expanding freely into the fables, figures and symbols of the imagination. I think of my style as "Bohemian Whimsey," that wonderful intersection in our hearts where reality and fantasy meet."

Mia Pratt is best known for her Visual Fables compositions depicting colorfully-costumed women in garden settings, and Captured Beauty works that depict close-up interpretations of her favorite subjects. Her lush compositions tempt the eye through colorful visual feasts of texture and luminosity, while subtle symbolism and hidden narratives peak the imagination. Mia uses combinations of oil paints, impasto medium, metallic finishes and translucent glazing to attain the luminescent quality that defines her work. She combines the loosely-defined strokes of impressionism with delicate areas of detailing to convey a romanticized point of view that blends realism with fantasy for an intoxicating artistic experience.
Mia has been a working artist since she sold her first paintings on the streets of San Francisco at the age of seventeen, with art studios in the US and Mexico. She is the former owner of Old Pratt Studios philanthropic artists guild, is the author of two books, and spent many years working as a professional dancer. She is an avid supporter of rescue dogs and their role in treating veterans with PTSD and TBI.
