Felicia Aroney: The Artist

2237132_orig

Born in Western Australia, from a Greek family, Felicia’s greatest influences are drawn from the fusion of her rich Australian upbringing and her European background.

Combining a feeling of rustic antiquity akin to aged historic ruins and the great Australian environment she creates richly textured and unique paintings. In addition, the beautiful animated Fairy Wrens, an Australian garden bird, are incorporated into her works giving them a gentle beauty.

Felicia elaborates here in her own words:

 

“My fascination of old damaged walls and the appearance of ancient ruins; alongside with my interest in the dynamic Australian Fairy wren birds have shaped my art.”

 – Felicia Aroney –

Felicia’s love of Australian indigenous art has influenced her technique. She too has explored the wondrous textures and shapes of fruit and leaves, a subject she also loves to paint. Her work requires great patience and delicacy. As she carefully builds layer upon layer on her paintings, they begin to develop a real physical presence. By etching into these thick layers of oil paint, she forms the wonderfully organic shape and texture of leaves.

Felicia studied Graphic Design and Fine arts at Curtin University in WA.

She has won five art prizes and has had many successful solo and group exhibitions. She has clients spanning from Australia, USA and Asia.
