Here is the mini-interview I made to Miranda:

What inspires you?
All my life I’ve been totally addicted to colors and patterns. As a kid I liked sewing and knitting clothes for my puppets and for myself, using the most beautiful colorful fabrics. 
I find my inspiration in structures in nature, architecture and everywhere. Also I can get  many ideas from cultural expressions, like arabic patterns, etnics and tropicals. And the retro time of 70’s another my favorites, I  like to transform my ideas in patterns that are organical, symmetrical, colorful and full of expression.  
What is your favorite part of the surface pattern design work?
My favorite part of the surface design work is playing around with forms and colors. Mostly I translate my inspirations sources indirectly. I like starting by drawing some lines and forms, combining elements, often to abstract compositions. Love that process of experiments. When I have made a lot of these sketched elements I take a look to how to transform this in repeats and patterns. 

What is your big dream as a designer?
My big dream as designer is to start my own brand one day. Also designing for firms like Ikea and Hema are the goals I really like to achieve!
