C. Foster

Artist working in Acrylic, Oil and Watercolour

Canada

Biography - C. Foster loves to create representational landscape and flower paintings in oil, acrylic and watercolour that use expressive colour and light ... sprinkled with a touch of abstraction and whimsy. Growing up on the Canadian prairies and Lake of the Woods, Ontario, has provided Chris with landscapes that offer a kaleidoscope of colours and amazing light to provide never ending inspiration. This home turf coupled by some pretty amazing world trips have become her painting catalogue. Artistic Approach - I consider myself a 70% abstract representational painter. What that means is....if I paint a tree...you'll know its a tree...it may be a purple and yellow tree but you'll know its a tree! I don't see myself ever competing with a camera and am far more interested in evoking a mood....often light-hearted and whimsical. The other 30% is an entirely different aesthetic involving brush work and rice paper! I can't remember a time when I haven't loved flowers and Asian influences! I am drawn to beautiful colours and even in my landscapes - I will often add in line work that is often found in Chinese and Japanese art.
