suite felicia art
I am accredited to teach art K-12 in several U.S. States. Large scale abstract paintings are my strongest means of self expression as well as smaller artwork on paper and mixed media collages. I've often said to my elementary students that artists are scientists which enjoy experimentation. Now that my nest is empty I am focusing on my own artwork. My studio has wonderful windows to enhance my own thirst for sunshine so my muse directs my brushstrokes. I often discover that my favorite paintings came from my curiosity about our natural world. I'm fascinated by the delicacy of flowers and attempt to preserve their singular beauty with my camera as well as my paintbrushes. Beside representational art, I do enjoy experiencing color, so to speak in large scale abstracts. No life is without difficult times and I believe those hard lessons in life have enhanced my work, given it a rare honesty. I often feel my paintings are just like an autobiography, with all of me on display. It could be said that I study myself as well as current evolution in the world of art. My CV can be seen on saatchiart.com under my name; Felicia Haberman Raschke and on instagram as feliciaraschke_art.
