Artist Spotlight Introducing "The Secret Hermit"

I am delighted to introduce to The Artist Spotlight "The Secret Hermit" Micki Wilde. A wonderfully creative and inspiring artist, celebrating the whimsical in her mixed media paintings.

"A little Birdy Told me"

How did you begin your painting career ?
I first began painting in the later months of 2007, i used to design my own tattoos and my tattooist ( who was a good friend ) suggested i give it and go and with prompting from my husband i took a couple of on-line classes and never looked back.

"Begin your journey"

How would you describe your work ?
My artwork is mainly of the female form, i use many different mediums to create textures within my paintings and the majority of my work is of a light hearted - whimsical  nature.


What you paint, is this a reflection of your personality ?
i think so yes, i am fairly quirky in nature and also very changeable in my likes and dislikes, this comes across in my paintings when my "style" all of a sudden changes and a new breed of artwork is spawned.

"Among the flowers"

You can invite your favourite artist of creative person to dinner, who would it be and what would you have for dinner ?
Hmm this is a tough one, i am not fixated on any artist old or new but i do think that Jesse Reno would be an awesome dinner guest with some interesting topic of conversation i am sure.
As for dessert that would be anything smothered in chocolate as i am a certified chocoholic.

This is a Jesse Reno Painting.

Can you share any advice for new and aspiring artists / creative' s from your experiences in painting?

Really my only advice is just to do it and don't give up; the old saying 'Rome wasn't built in a day'
also could not be truer when stepping tentatively into the art world, take one day at a time, grab what
you have to hand and make something you like, and most of all don't worry about what anyone else is doing

"She loved to feed the birds"

I know her work and I am an admirer. I love her answer to the last question though it is so hard to follow! 'Don't give up... take one day at a time... make something you like and don't worry about what anyone else is doing'.
