Creator of the “Art Journal Rebellion,” Felicia Borges (rhymes with gorgeous) has been creative her entire life.  She spent 20 years volunteering/consulting for a non-profit creative problem solving program where she confirmed there is no box and eventually came to be known as the organization’s Flaming Explorer!

But it wasn’t until 2010, that she bravely declared, “I am an artist!” and started art journaling.  She has been inspiring others to embrace “There are no rules!” ever since.  She teaches both privately (i.e. Paint&Sip events) and as part of PSIMakers, an emerging maker space in Northern California.  She is excited to be making her e-course debut as a teacher for Effy Wild’s “RADIANT: Art Journals.”

In addition to mixed media work, in 2013 she also began playing with fused glass at a girlfriend’s house realized that she didn’t want to share (and so she invested in her own kiln).

Felicia loves abstract, modern, and street art. She is inspired by patterns found in traditional cultural symbols and art from around the world, graffiti, stained glass windows, sand painting, and more. Current favorites are Day of the Dead, Chinese cut paper designs, African tribal masks, motifs from India, and sand painting in all forms (including Native American, Indigenous Australian, and Tibetan). Using bold colors, patterns, and textures, Felicia works primarily in mixed media and what she refers to as “Kiln Formed Graffiti Glass.”  (Those that know of her background have said it looks like her unique style of art journaling, now captured in glass.) Tools are often found, recycled, or handmade and can range from a handmade Tibetan-inspired “chak-pur” to original stamps and stencils. Finished pieces, often containing 100 layers or more, are contemporary with an industrial edge.
