I want to introduce you to Felice Kite!
Felice has a beautiful family ~ husband John and two gorgeous and bright teenage daughters. She has a BS in Interior Design from Virginia Tech. In addition to her interior design work, she began painting about five years ago.
Felice and I knew each other in high school and recently reconnected through Facebook. Long story short, I commissioned her to paint a piece for my studio. Here it is:
Isn't it awesome?! It's SO me!
Then she transformed this cabinet:
I love them! So colorful and fun ~ I smile every time I walk by them!
Felice is such a doll, so cheerful and sweet. And so thoughtful! Look what she surprised me with when I went to her home to pick up the wall art and cabinet:
Eke! The (doggie) love of my life! Felice expertly and beautifully captured exactly what Twyla looks like. Look at the painting next to the photo she used as inspiration:
And I absolutely love how she framed the portrait.
I could go on and on about how much I love the pieces she made for me. Seriously. But I'll move on and show you some of her other work...
She really enjoys creating word art like these pieces:
Painting pet portraits is a fairly new endeavor for Felice. Since painting her first one about a year ago, she's sold over a 130 of them. Look at these cuties:
Felice also shares my love of the ocean and finds lots of inspiration at the beach. Her mermaid paintings are quite popular:
In the summertime, in July, you can find Felice at Carolina Beach Farmer's Market on Saturdays and at Kure Beach Farmer's Market on Tuesday. A beach trip AND art ~ perfect!
Felice counts her wonderful family (including her parents and sister) and friends as wonderful supporters of her art and business. She says, "How did I get so lucky? I will chase this dream forever. It is a great life!"
I feel very lucky to have reconnected with her!
