Mick & Di


Indigenous art dealers Mick, 76, and Di, 73, met on Sydney’s Northern Beaches when Di was 17-years-old. They have been happily married for over 50 years and reckon they know each other inside out.

Di, a former model, convinced Mick to give up his high-flying career as an advertising executive in order to follow their passion for art. The two are now dealers in Indigenous art.

With their artist son living in California and their daughter married, it is just the two of them sharing their bright, art-filled apartment in inner Sydney. However, one day a week they get to exercise their grandparent duties running after their nearly three-year-old grandchild.

These Goggleboxers love their food and wine, lunching and socialising whenever they can. Di will watch anything with the late Anthony Bourdain, they both love the news and testing their knowledge on shows like QI and are sure to bring a keen cultural eye to the week’s big moments in television.
