Felice was born in New York and came to the UK when she was thirteen, studying at the Royal College of Music. She later returned to the US to attend Cornell University, graduating in 1976 with a First Class honours degree in music and art.

Since then, Felice has made England her home and has studios in both London and rural Dorset, locations which have greatly influenced her art.

Her abstract still lifes and landscapes - inspired by the river and the English countryside, as well as the urban buzz of city life - explore a variety of themes, always underpinned by the nuanced use of colour, line and pronounced rhythm.

...like the truest art, Felices’s paintings transcend the harsh rigidities and conformities of language. They hover between abstraction and some mysterious, transformed poetic reality. Tones are laid next to, or over each other, to create highly original and unexpected chromatic combinations which are also intensely beautiful... subtle, ravishing harmonies of colour. Such an expressive approach to painting and perception enriches all who see it
