Description

Felicity’s work combines the roles of artist, jeweller and craftsperson. Her jewellery and small sculptures are crafted from silver, 18ct, 24ct, green gold, semi-precious and precious stones and Japanese alloys. Her signature technique is Keum Boo, a Korean technique of fusing 24ct gold sheet to sterling silver. Felicity’s skill in this field was further recognised by an invitation to present lectures and demonstrations at 'Art for Adornment' exhibition in Seoul, Korea.

She has found joy in the rhythm of the environment, the colours and forms that have surrounded her whilst she has lived in the Kimberley; Goldfields and the Pilbara areas of Western Australia. Felicity’s Keum Boo pieces are a reflection of the textures and patterns found in the West Australian landscape and that of rural South Africa where she grew up. Her love of the very process of working with metal, integral in her being is evident in the beauty of all her pieces.

Felicity has exhibited extensively in select and solo exhibitions nationally and internationally including the USA, Asia, and Europe. She has been awarded numerous awards and major grants by the Australia Council and ArtsWA, commissioned by the National Gallery, Canberra and the Ministry for Culture and the Arts. Her work can also be found in a number of public collections including the Art Gallery of Western Australia, the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory and the Alice and Louis Koch Collection in Switzerland.

Aspects stocks a range of Felicity's earrings, necklaces, cuffs, bracelets, cuff links and small sculptural pieces.

Made in Western Australia.
