Hello! I am happily married and we have 5 grandchildren.
I started modelling when I was 45, after I'd moved to England from America. You might ask why I would start modelling at such a late age. People have told me my whole life I should be a model, but I always wanted to do my art and just felt happy to be that tall skinny chick. It's amazing what a new start can do! Modelling just dropped in my lap when I moved to England, so I gave it a go. I am having a BLAST meeting new people and exploring my potential. I am now in my 60's and have semi-retired from modelling, but that doesn't mean I don't want new jobs. :o)
I worked with over 100 photographers during my 'heyday', but I'm always happy to work with anyone who has some great ideas that will add to my portfolio. I've been told I am easy to work with and have fun ideas. The slide shows featured here represent my commercial work and my favourite photos through the years.
I am naturally slim, but I'm far from perfect since I'm a grandmother - and face it, I'm no 'Spring Chicken'. I've never had plastic surgery, so you get me 'as is'. Today's woman wants to be represented by women their own age, so get in touch if you'd like to hire a professional and experienced classic model for your next project or runway show. :)

I can do voice-over work. I've also been doing radio shows for various independent stations in the UK. I've also had the great fortune to present aboard some of the radio ships associated with the old days of Pirate Radio in England. I am a summer regular in Harwich presenting for Radio Mi Amigo aboard the LV18.

'Kitchen Sink to Catwalk'
was produced by the same people who produced 'Britain's Next Top Model'. Our mentor was London designer Scott Henshall.
I lived in a house in London with five other women over the age of 40 for 2-1/2 weeks. We lived the life of a model each day, complete with photo shoots and castings. It was an intense adventure and I wouldn't have missed it for the world! They cut my hair even shorter and dyed it nearly black. That was so strange at first. I have since gone back to my natural colour.

Sample of my abstract work - "Caress" - Acrylic on canvas
I work in acrylic, pastel and charcoal.
I love to draw and paint. I worked for years as a typesetter and paste-up artist. I graduated into sign work and owned my own neon sign shop until I moved to England.
Micki is an accomplished artist, working mostly in acrylics and pastels. She has been sewing since she was nine years old.
LONDON OLYMPIA 50+ RUNWAY SHOW July 2011, 2012, 2013 & 2014
I love to sew and I have recently discovered 16" Fashion Dolls. I've always loved Barbie dolls and have a nice collection of old and new. 16" dolls are so much easier to sew for than Barbie who is only 11-1/2".
This is 'Carrie' a doll by Robert Tonner. She helped me design a patriotic Union Jack frock in anticipation of the London 2012 Summer Olympics. This is one outfit in a series of eight that I designed for display during the Olympics Link to my doll site:
