Felicity grew up in the Chicago area and received her BA in Fine Art with a concentration in Art History from Loyola University, a MA in Art Therapy and an AED from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She taught Photography, Ceramics and Art History at high schools and colleges in the Chicago area as well as in California. Felicity studied in Rome and France during college and has traveled to many parts of Europe, Asia, Mexico and South America, including teaching photography on student study trips to Ireland and China. Her work is included in public and private collections.
During her time in San Antonio, Felicity has had exhibits at San Antonio Art League and Museum, King William Association and On and Off Fredericksburg Road studio tour. She holds workshops and classes for all ages in her Beacon Hill Studio and has taught at the Southwest School of Art and Fusion Academy.

I have been experimenting with surface, texture, pattern and design through glaze application in functional and sculptural ceramics. I look on my practice as a marriage of art and science, physics and chemistry. Some work is based on forms that represent or suggest plant and animal forms, seeking the organic in new iterations, substituting suggestion for representation while other pieces are figurative. As a teacher, I have often been compelled to explore, experiment and make what I am teaching.
