Hello there, I am Micki Wilde otherwise known as ‘The Secret Hermit’ I am a self taught mixed media artist and one woman show from Leicestershire UK.
My painting process is a happy fusion of pre-planned and intuitive work with the main aim being to create an interesting visual tale with a whimsical flair.
As a self confessed hermit my work to me is a source of escape from the world outside my door, a safe haven where fantastical dreams are born and new worlds populated by magical things are imagined and explored.
My work is approached in a light-hearted manner with the hope to charm and endear its characters to the onlooker and draw them in to my wondrous and whimsical world.
Some of the typical topics and themes that can be found in my work are: tribal, magic, Celtic, Greek, Norse, fantasy, mythology, fairy-tales, legend, folklore, goddess, pagan, fairy, crystals, animals, totems, spirit guides etc
I work with a range of different mediums but typically I use; Acrylic Paint, inks, pens, pencils and charcoal to create layers and help these stories unfold on to the canvas.
