My name is Felicia Follum. I am a an artist and traveler. I mostly work in watercolor but dabble in collage, acrylic, and mixed media. I studied 2-d and print graphic design in college along with *Humanities.
My work focuses on cultural diversity, social issues or the mixing of cultures that I see happening around me as I travel the world and explore my own community. I love to explore diversity and use my art to relate to a variety of groups, while holding fast to my deeply held Christian faith. My watercolor paintings and mixed media work can be recognized by the bright colors, bold textures and patterns. You may also recognize my woman figures that keep appearing. They were originally inspired by a 28 hour train ride through Northern India and I use them to continue to explore femininity expressed through a variety of cultures.
My husband and I recently moved to the Tri-Cities from Laramie, Wyoming and I am becoming anactive part of the arts community here in the Tri-Cities, WA.
Though not a traditional art teacher I have experience teaching art to a wide variety of students including at risk teens, adults with disabilities, young children in the favelas of Brazil as well as women and children in a small village in Haiti. In the Tri-Cities there have been many opportunities to teach classes, lead workshops and give lectures and I’m looking forward to more adventures while exploring ways to share art with people in a variety of creative ways. I am often available for private lessons or classes with children and adults.
*My Humanities Areas of Emphasis were African-American and Diaspora Studies, Religious Studies and Philosophy.
