This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is from Edward C. Marhanka:

Mikki Senkarik (1954 - )

Born in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, Mikki Senkarik has changed from a medical illustrator in the 1980s to a plein-air painter in the 1990s.  She attributes much of her current positive feeling about herself as a plein-air artist to her current mate.

Today, Senkarik paints colorful plein-air landscapes, which are a mix of California Impressionism with a New Mexico flavor. She uses the double primary palette technique bringing her paintings to life. Her colorful landscapes are intended as Billboards of Happiness, letting the world know of all the beauty that she has to express.

Senkarik is a graduate of the Medical College of Georgia and has illustrated 47 major medical books. Some of her early works as a painter of horses can be seen at Museum of the Horse in Lexington, Kentucky.

Her colorful brush strokes splashing across the canvas creating landscapes are painted both in her studio and en-plein air. In addition to the focus on her painting, Senkarik and her husband spend an enormous amount of time giving back to the community by directing the career of other talented artists.




Biography from Pitzer's Fine Arts:
Her paintings have been referred to as “Billboards of Happiness”! And to view one of MIKKI SENKARIK’S paintings, bursting with joy and color one can understand why immediately. Her canvases of brilliant colors sing out beauty like a Maui sunset, and lure you into the subject. Mikki’s architecture is accurate, her colors intense, and her flowers anatomically correct.

As a medical artist Senkarik illustrated 47 major medical books and was awarded the top illustrator prize in five of nine years. She now brings that same dedication to her career as an easel painter. When asked about the switch, she says, “When I paint a garden scene, my energy level rises to a euphoric high. The exhilaration is difficult to explain. My work now speaks the volumes of joy I was never allowed to express as a child. I have a reason to live now and I shout it in color every day onto my canvases.”

Explaining her recurrent themes of architecture and flowers, Mikki says, “Flowers seemed to germinate in my mind, and grow on my canvases. Architecture reflects the solid foundation of my life now. I no longer lead a discombobulated existence. My life has structure and stability, and the strong building is a testament to that part of me.”
