Felicia is a professional Illustrator who was trained at the Art Institute, Da Vinci Creative Kids, and several esteemed centres in Malaysia.
Felicia is a multifaceted artist who dedicates most of her time in teaching art to children from 3 to 15 years of age. She understands the power of art when instilled at a young age – how art shapes creative mindsets; about interlinking art to visualisation, feelings, emotions. She teaches children to sketch using lines and basic colours.
She expresses profound interest in acrylic, soft pastel and ink on watercolour paper. Her core subject focusses on animals – particularly dogs, green iguana and underwater creatures. An animal lover since childhood, Felicia had experimented with sketching natural sceneries with small animals that complement her paintings. Drawing random sketches that may be either cartoons or realistic, Felicia gradually developed her own creativity with brand new ideas and began painting realistic animal portraits that exude stronger awareness, with a paramount message to society – encouraging humanity to demonstrate genuine care and love to all animals in the world.
Throughout her years of being an artist, Felicia renews her passion and commitment towards art by extending knowledge to people around her. She recognises the delights of self-discovery – by giving and sharing.
Apart from her artistic persona, her compassion reaches out to those in need. She has contributed to numerous charitable events including NASOM, Kuala Kertilat Kuala Kangsar Orphanage and Spastic Centre in Petaling Jaya. Felicia was an active volunteer at Zoo Negara Malaysia and assisted Dr S Vellayan to conduct researches on animal lifespan. Felicia also volunteers her works for Animal World day organised by SPCA to ignite more awareness in helping strays.
