Charis Félice is a conscioussness artist. By being open to what life brings and diving into diverse experiences, she developed and discovered her fascinations as an artist.
Since she was younger Charis Félice always loves to express herself in creative ways, mainly with visuals and audio. As a dynamic person, Charis Félice likes to discover new subjects and new point of views. Creative expression is the main thread that was always present in her life already. After graduating as multimedia designer she travelled around in Europe to discover different kind of lifestyles. For 4 months she lived in rural areas in Italy to visit people with excentric lifestyles and eco farms. She worked on the land as well as making furniture.
Healing and different approaches on life, the human body and psyche already was a great fascination because she studied Traditional Chinese Medicine and Shiatsu for one year.
In Menorca she worked and lived for a year as an solo hotel entertainer where she met a lot of people with beautiful and bizarre stories. It was a great time because with this experience Charis Félice discovered her passion for entrepeneurship even more.
After a while Charis Félice decided to study further at the art academy where she learned how to use art concepts in her work. She soon discovered that she wasn’t at the right place at an applied art study called “Illustration and Design” for what she wanted to create. She didn’t need an assignment to trigger her creativity. Her fascination for semotics, fine arts, the human psyche but also the human body was combined in her thesis about visionary artists, which was mainly about fine art artists and their perspective on the future. In this period Charis Félice became even more interested in human consciousness and synchronity. She teached herself to read tarot cards.
While working as a freelance illustrator and designer, Charis Félice started to combine all her fascinations in two of her art projects: Slutster.com and HealingTarot.Net. In the portfolio of this website you can see and read more about these art projects. Subjects as recognition, connection and (group) human behavior are an essential part. Her passion for entrepeneurship, web development and art are all combined within these projects.
