Francoise de Felice | France
It's a Pandora's box from which all my dreams arise ..."
- from Felice
Francoise de Felice, descendant of an Italian father and French mother, was born in Paris where she lived until she as 20 years of age. As a child Francoise was introduced to art by her grandmother. Later whilst at the Sorbonne she also attended the Beaux Arts. Her initial introduction was to that of the essential Impressionism. Francoise de Felice then left France for Sicily where she found that the French Impressionism was not enough. There she developed her own style, letting of the well-worn paths in order to create her own style. Inspired by the magnificence of The Sicilian baroque and the light of the island, she reached out further to an almost liquid yet precise line. Her style derives both from instinct and depth of thought. The compositions of her paintings are an introspective story, one of self-analysis.
Francoise de Felice settled on the Ile de France close to Paris. Her works have exhibited well across Europe and now, for the first time, in the UK with Hope Gallery.
