Artist, Writer, & Educator living and working in Houston, Texas.
Foster explores the deeply embedded aesthetics of home (interior furnishings and decorations) within broader conversations about culture and conservatism in both Houston and the American South. Working with domestic materials, pieces explore the tension of this situated home as a space of comfort and simultaneous confinement.
Foster studied art and writing at Rice University, and is currently a Teaching Fellow & MFA Candidate at the University of Houston.
