MIXED MEDIA MOSAICS WATERCOLOURS OILS
"Old and New" Luxor, Egypt.
3' x 2'
Oil and Mixed Media on Canvas
Commissioned by Unesco shown at Egyptian Embassy London.
Felicity captures the old and new life along the Nile. One side has the history of the ancient Egyptian symbols stitched on in brown string with the statues laid out in perspective dissappearing into the receeding columns. On the right side is the new 'tourist' Egypt using its legacy of history to entice the tourist. The Coke Cola and McDonalds logos and mobile phones become the new age symbols of tourism.
"The Arena at Leptis Magna", Libya
Oil on canvas
3' x 2'
Among her major works Felicity produces large scale oil paintings, often of local scenes she travels to. Her love of Roman ruins prevails in many of her ART WORKS, here showing the idyllic colours that the azure Meditterean in the backdrop shows against the lush greenery of the pastures that surround the prestigious location that the arena was built on. The typical archway is one Felicity leans to in her work as a trade mark signiture.

Still life set up in studio to look at folds in materials.
The Libyaan national coat brings a striking balance to the sleeveless striped dress with the panama hat tangled in the mist and rope. If you look carefully you will see the black glove
entwined in the loop created by the rope.

Mosaic and Mixed Media on board.
A smooth mixture of oils, mosaic and tin punched out with a decorative design for the gate. Based on moorish and arabic architecture. Felicity blends the images together using a limited pallet of blues and whites, enhanced only by brown for the vine branches that weave in and out and balanced by the windows. The metalic doorway features an pattern that Felicity used a hole punch to create.
"The Thai Villa" Thailand
Watercolour and ink
Spending hours and days recording imagery in her sketchbook, Felicity's work will be a stand alone finished ART WORK of local scenes . The prolific foilage of the Thai gardens and the local pointed rooves and winding trees all are recorded as evidence of Thai life that the viewer gets a snap shot to.
