Mickie was born in New Westminster and began painting at a very early age, receiving her first oil painting set at age eleven. Painting full time from her home studio in Ladysmith, British Columbia, Mickie is currently represented by the White Rock Gallery, the Stephen Lowe Art Gallery, and the Galerie d’art Au P’tit Bonheur. Mickie is a Senior Signature member of the Federation of Canadian Artists and well as a lifetime member of Painters at Painter’s.
For me, the creative process begins with the act of placing objects next to one another. I seek to establish a composition in which those objects compliment and strengthen each other through light, form, value and harmony of colour. Like characters in a play these objects tell stories that are magically endless.
I am filled with gratitude for the ability to live the artist’s life. In my studio, being an artist, everyday.
