Felicity House

“Crabs and Lemons” © Felicity House
Name: Felicity House
Bio: Felicity House recalls that as a child she could never get enough drawing material. A post-war education that gave time and status to Art encouraged and developed her visual skills.
She gained her B.Ed (Hons) from Bristol University in 1972 and pursued a career teaching until 2000. She received a HNC (Higher National Certificate) Art and Fine Art from the Arts University Bournemouth and taught there from 2000 as a tutor of life drawing and short art courses. She also became the Art Tutor for West Dean College from 2005 – 2012. This flexibility gave her the opportunity to travel and fill numerous sketchbooks.
Felicity was elected a Member of the Pastel Society in 2003. As Archivist for the Society she regularly research the archives for information in response to requests from the public. She has also contributed to numerous art magazines, including the Pastel Journal (October 2009); the Artist magazine (2009, 2010, 2012, 2013 – when she was interviewed by Ken Gofton, a frequent contributor to the Pastel Journal);  Watercolour Artist (USA); Leisure Painter (2012); and Artists and Illustrators Magazine (2013).
She is currently Chairman of Bournemouth Arts Club, a meeting point for Artists in the region which regularly holds selected Exhibitions.

  1. Felicity's work has a beautiful drawing foundation, yet she can jump into the color side of it, and let the outlines go. Quite wonderful to see the drawing speaking with such a vigorous voice. Inspiring! Thanks for posting these.
