Mickie was born in Bogota, Colombia to a Peace Corps Alumni Father and Peruvian Mother currently in the high fashion industry.
Mickie was raised primarily in Dallas, TX and traveled throughout her childhood. She found her love for Fine Arts @ the University of North Texas where she received her Bachelor of Visual Arts with a focus on Graphic Design, Photography and Experimental Art.
In 2003 she moved to Hollywood, CA. where she produced, wrote and directed Face Underground's annual avant-garde extreme performance art exhibitions. She also worked as a freelance graphic designer with JEMM Magazine. In 2013 she also worked on set with a internationally known fashion photographer, Markus Klinko.
From 2014 to 2015 Mickie launched The Misfit Gallery in Dallas. (Click interview from the Dallas Morning News for more details.) Mickie closed the gallery to follow her wife's dream job in coding and to live in Sydney. Inspired to create during the political times, Eva Ericksen, Mickie's wife, started Humanity Portraits.com and Mickie helped produce it along with being the National Manager / Strategic Partner for ArtSHINE Gallery and publicist for Black Eye Gallery.
