Mickie Mueller grew up beneath the great mountains and the desert sky of Albuquerque, New Mexico. They aptly call it "The Land of Enchantment." She was exposed to art all her life, both of her parents’ were prominent artists and craftspeople in the area, and she was influenced by many of the great artists of the Southwest, all friends of the family. In her late teens, she moved with her family to the green rolling hills of Missouri were she now lives and makes her home and studio. Mickie began working as a freelance artist in 1983, showing her award winning art in local galleries, and her work appearing in newspaper ads, and CD/cassette covers for local bands. She even worked for awhile as a computer colorist for comic book companies like Marvel, D.C. and Dark Horse to name a few.
By the mid 1990’s, Mickie was moving away from creating other peoples visions and began nurturing her own signature fantasy art style as she began creating images from her heart and imagination. She began delving into the magical world that she saw in all places of nature, finding fairies, nature spirits, and Goddesses living in the trees and forests. She developed special techniques like adding magical herbs to her paint to further make her art spiritual and magical. She began offering her prints at local events, comic book shops and boutiques.
Today Mickie has a growing business with her magical fantasy art. Her work has been seen in magazines and books internationally. She is a featured artist for many Llewellyn book titles and is an author for them producing beautiful covers and interior illustrations.
In addition to her work appearing in print, she has an ever expanding line of Sterling Silver Jewelry and an amazing statuary line. The Mickie Mueller Collection is one of our featured collection with Mickie's statues ready to grace your home or altar.
