"If I can breathe life into each painting, then I have achieved my true purpose as an artist" - Felicity L. Kostakis
Felicity L. Kostakis
Born in Sydney, Australia, Felicity Kostakis has been heavily influenced by the sea. Her early inspiration came from the magnificent coastlines of Australia’s southeast region. When she was only eight years old, she picked up a brush and began painting with any and every medium she could find. After studying in Australia, Felicity moved to Dublin, Ireland where the bays and peninsulas of the Emerald Isle continued to awake her artistic impulses. After a visit to the Connecticut shore in 1998, Felicity became inspired by the New England coastlines and moved her studio permanently to Old Greenwich, CT.
Felicity’s artwork is rich with light and nature. Where the horizon meets the shore, where land, sea and sky come together, and the ever-changing moods of the water are all images in her paintings evoking various moods, from tranquil to mysterious. She has extended her ability to capture the grandeur of the sea to many other subjects including landscapes, animals and still lifes.
Felicity is an art instructor at Greenwich Academy. She is a member of The Greenwich Art Society, The Art Society of Old Greenwich, The Greenwich Arts Council and the Collectors Council at the Bruce Museum. Felicity is currently the co-chair of the development committee for the Bruce Museum. Felicity works full time in her Old Greenwich studio where she continues to be inspired by the New England coastlines daily.
Felicity enjoys commissions and welcomes inquiries.
