About the instructor

Felicity is not only an accomplished and award winning artist, but a registered psychologist and art mentor. After identifying a lack of support for female artists in the industry, she decided to establish her own mentoring program to not only provide this support but build an empowering community of female artistic talent. 

The Activator Program provides budding female artists with insider knowledge, educational material, resources and an enriching community of which all members can participate in. Felicity holds regular live group discussions and records podcasts for her community to access and utilise. Additionally, there are opportunities to members to exhibit, showcase and sell their own pieces.

In her role as a professional artist,  she has been selected as a finalist in the Hunters Hill Art Prize 2016, the Blacktown Art Prize and the Hornsby Art Prize 2015. She has also been a five time finalist in the Gosford Art Prize as well as many other awards and accolades which you can read about on her art website.
