Jared Lee Foster
Engineer – Artist | Create – Reflect
Jared is an engineer by education, but has always found himself coming back to artistic endeavors. Prior to his studies in engineering Jared studied Art and Architecture for a year. After college he would find himself coming back to art whether that be through photography, pencil and charcoal or painting. From those three creative mediums Jared was drawn to painting for the mediums ability to convey colors and textures. Other than the year of Art and Architecture Jared is a self taught artist with interest in color, self-expressive imagery, and natural abstraction in nature.
Jared was born in California and raised in Alaska where he started to understand the connections and importance of the natural world. Although he does not create traditional landscapes his interaction with the natural world guides how he looks at nature and the natural abstraction that occurs in the environment.
Many of Jared’s paintings are inspired by nature, but push away from the macro compositional framework and embraces the abstraction in nature when contextual markers are removed.
