Felish is an individual that does not like conformity. Her life is ruled by philosophy and rationality. Through the many twists and negative turns life has taken you, she has always believed that you are in control of your own outlook of life. Instead of caving in to the negative vibes, keep your head up and prove that stars do shine no matter how dark everything may be. She was born in the city of Mississauga, Toronto with a Goan (India) and Trinidadian ethnicity. She’s been an artist at the tender age of 14. Influenced by the surreal style of Salvador Dali. Her works have always been unique and original. Felicia is passionate about personalizing all her work. Her works unite image and color to a symbolic meaning. As individualistic as each person may be her art is a significant meaning to its beholder. Her works can not be categorized or labeled. Felicia’s style is fresh with variety and diversity. She breaks barriers and believes in expanding as an artist.

My name is Sandy Chen, and I love painting. I started out making images with pencils, color pencils, and charcoal. These satisfied me for a time, but it wasn’t until I discovered oil paints that I felt my creative juices really start flowing. With oil paints, I can put layer upon layer of color. When I paint, all my thoughts and feelings at the time go into the making of the picture—it evolves as I paint it. Each of my paintings, therefore, reflects a different stage of my life.
I love sharing my paintings with the people in my life. Through my works, I can make connections with people that I may not have discovered otherwise.
I hope that when people look at my paintings they will feel touched by them in some way.
I want people to know that painting is not as difficult as it may appear. Should you feel inspired, after looking at my works, to want to pick up a brush, I encourage you to do so. You won’t regret it.
