Susan Foster's Photo

Susan J. Foster currently teaches at the Southern Atelier. Susan is best known for her floral and still life paintings. She taught portrait painting at Ringling College for many years. Her love of the craft and science of painting has left her with a firm commitment to meet every student at their level…and that is why her classes are filled.
Susan works to help students develop the tools that will allow them to move in a direction that is uniquely their own. Susan is one of our most admired teachers because she knows the value of teaching. She understood that just because she could paint well did not mean she could teach well…so Susan made sure she also knew how to teach well. We hear only positives about her teaching.
Susan is also an incredible painter. She has been featured in the article about the Light Chasers in American Art Collector. Her painting was selected for the article. Susan also was in the Light Chasers Featured Artist show this year at Palm Avenue Fine Arts Gallery and was immediately asked by the gallery to become one of their artists. She is now represented by Palm Avenue Fine Arts Gallery.
