Did you know that Felicity House has an art collection composed completely of female artists? We take great pride in making sure our space is warm and inviting. For this reason, we carefully selected artworks that will reflect a welcoming vibe and inspire creativity among our community. We worked with an assortment of artists to curate several pieces made by women with autism and also other female artists.
Here are some of our favorite pieces:
