Mikki trained at Cheltenham School of Art and Nottingham Trent Polytechnic, graduating with first class honours in 1988. She then spent 13 successful years as a graphic designer in London and Surrey, producing award winning work for international clients. Mikki returned to the East Midlands in 2000 and was inspired to paint the attractive villages and towns she found on her doorstep.
In her work, Mikki defines a sense of place and the architectural character for each individual location. Each piece is brimming with colour, texture and pattern, creating a heightened reality and a very personal view of the world.
