I am an Australian mixed media and textile artist based in Rome, Italy.
I use silk, wool, alpaca and linen, mulberry bark, synthetics, paper, metals and found objects to convey colours, textures and meanings in unconventional ways. I’m especially interested in conveying emotions such as grief, trauma and stigma: jealousy, post-traumatic stress and the scarification of physical suffering often feature in my work.
I exhibit in Australia and overseas and won the inaugural Buda Textile Award in 2008. My three dimensional work siliqua lucti appeared in Seth Apter’s 2013 book The Mixed Media Artist: Art Tips, Tricks, Secrets and Dreams from Over 40 Amazing Artists.
Together with my husband, William Paul, I run the Counterweave Arts Gallery & Workshop in Rome, where we promote and sell Aboriginal and contemporary Australian art. Photos of works in progress are posted on Instagram at felicitygriffinclark and on my Facebook page Felicity Griffin Clark – textile artist.
I am also a trained Reiki practitioner, specialising in distance Reiki – you can book a session with me here.
