Painter Felicia Capuia

College student Felicia Capuia works with acrylic paints, using photos from Zambia, where she was born in a refugee camp. She doesn’t remember Africa, so her paintings of family members and African scenes are a way to meditate on her background. The images are bright and look like murals.
