Mickey Paulssen followed the studio nude and realism at the Academy for Visual Arts. She got lessons in abstract and realism there. Of course painting, drawing and etching were the main subjects. Art history formed the foundation of all this. She trained herself in making portraits.Realism was always her starting point.
With her drawings, she faithfully depicts the beauty of man.
She does the same with Nishikigoi, the Japanese ornamental carps.
She uses pastel to put her feelings on paper in an abstract way.
With her etching, she makes a beautiful work of art with the power of acid and needle.
With mixed media she creates little miracles.
