Mikki graduated in Graphic Design before taking on her first professional job as an artist at a greeting card company where she learnt to emboss, die cut and do foil drawings in the golden pre-computer era. After working freelance for a few years Mikki accepted a job at Hallmark cards and progressed through the ranks to become senior in-house artist.
A family-driven lifestyle change was the motivation for going freelance again and Mikki has successfully made the transition to freelance book illustrator, illustrating a Bible for toddlers and the Pickle and Bree series. Having painted in watercolour most of her career Mikki is now a fan of the flexibility of computers.
Mikki lives with her family in South Yorkshire – and they love to escape to a little cabin in the woods in the Lake District to spot deer and badgers.
