Professor of Art, Texas A&M

FREE for everyone

FeliceHouse FullStudio small for web

Felice House is a figurative painter who strives, through her portraits of women, to provide a counterpoint to the passive female representations found in art historical tradition and culture at large. Her work endeavors to challenge stereotypes and empower her audience, women in particular, to change their preconceived notions of gender and power. For her talk at the Museum of the Southwest Felice will discuss her path to becoming a painter and her most recent series of paintings. She will also discuss the most streamlined approach to learning figurative painting today.

Felice House has exhibited in museums and galleries across the country, as well as internationally. Her paintings are represented in both private and public collections, including The Booth Museum of Western Art, New Mexico State University, American Campus Communities, Austin City Limits Music Festival, and Prentice Women’s Hospital. House’s 2017 solo exhibition at the Leeds College of Art in Leeds, UK was featured on the BBC news, in Vice Magazine’s The Creators ProjectThis is ColossalUpworthyRefinery29, Boing Boing, Fubiz, El Diario (Spain) and Tabi Labo (Japan).

House received a BFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, an MS from Texas A&M University in computer graphics and an MFA in painting from the University of Texas. In between her other schooling, she spent time studying classical painting and portraiture at the Schuler School of Fine Art in Baltimore, MD. She is an Assistant Professor in the Visualization Department at Texas A&M University.
