Felice Sharp was educated at the University of Tennessee and has resided in Atlanta for 34 years. In addition to her long-standing representation and exhibition history with the Bill Lowe Gallery in both Atlanta and Santa Monica, her work has been exhibited throughout the United States. She has been favorably reviewed in numerous art publications and television documentaries, and is included in several permanent corporate collections such as Ritz Carlton, Bernie Marcus Foundation, and Arthur Blank Corporation.

Atlanta based artist Felice Sharp, a former dancer and current yoga instructor, has an intimate knowledge of the human physical form, fluid movements and graceful lines, all of which shape the figurative character of her work. Sharp creates a rich painterly surface by utilizing the Italian Fresco method of mixing plaster with pigments; she also incorporates ink, wax, coffee and handmade paper into her compositions.
