Artistís Bio and Statement

Marjorie Foster, an emerging oil painter, is pursuing a painting career with her interest in a colorful palette. Initially interested in still life painting in a scenic setting, she is now expanding her outlook to paint landscapes ranging in a subject matter from trips to Europe as source material to more familiar venues, implementing a graffito painterly style.

Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Marjorie studied Textile Design at the Cleveland Institute of Art, she then moved to Atlanta with her husband and started a family. Returning to work in Graphic Arts, she eventually moved into Textile Design. Along the way she returned to Georgia State University to receive her B.F.A~ in Textile Design. She has studied portrait and figure painting with Roman and Constantine Chatov. Today she devotes her talents to painting exclusively in oils.

Marjorie is interested in finding a subject to paint that will permit experimentation and an exaggeration of color. She is interested in achieving an end result that will be an inspirational ex3~erience for the viewer with a pleasant and reflective result. Having been a child of the Depression and followed by World War II, she feels the need to bring an uplifting aspect to the viewer's eye.

Marjorie presently is painting in a style which is to her a passage whereby she hopes to grow even further in an artistic representation.
