Micki’s work is a response to things that are more often felt than named. Tapping into sensory memories, a halfway world, leads to abstract shape, textures, colors, and marks in her work; this evokes the impressions of named and unnamed things: the internal and external landscapes we have travelled to be here. Her art is surface driven. Texture, color, layering, excavation, visual and physical depth play a role in her storytelling and support her deeper narrative of awe, celebration, and wonder in both light and dark. Creative work that transports the viewer into other felt places is deeply satisfying. Her work is mysterious but somehow familiar or remembered, like archaeology. By the time the painting is complete, much of her energy has been transformed into the painting’s layers and marks, whether revealed or obscured: they have stories to tell.
