Felicia Aroney

​​Felicia Aroney is Western Australian born now living and working as a leading contemporary artist in Sydney. Felicia draws inspiration from her European heritage, channeling the distressed and peeled paint facades of classical architecture. Working with oils and acrylics her distinctive floral and abstract works utilise a highly sculptural mark-making process, using a palette knife to layer and shape the paint until it stands in relief from the canvas. Felicias’ love for her Australian organic environment is her choice of exploration. Her cherished memories of European holidays and weekends spent along the coast of Western Australia reflect in her work. Felicias` paintings evoke a sense of history and antiquity mixed with all things Australian. A wonderful synergy of her European heritage and Australian background.
