FRENCH PURSE AND GLOVES
I am a retired Art Teacher having taught for 27 years. I retired in 2007 to paint full time. I live in Boerne, Texas, 25 miles north of San Antonio.
I have a BA Degree in Drawing and Painting from The University of California, San Bernardino and an MFA Degree in Painting from The Maryland Institute, College of Art, in Baltimore, Maryland. I hold several teaching credentials and have taught Reading, ESL, Fifth Grade, Drawing, Painting, Sculpture, Ceramics, Printmaking, Fibers, and Art History. I have taught in the public school system, in a private school, on the college level, and I have given private lessons. I am primarily an oil painter and I paint in a realistic style. When I am not painting I am drawing.
I am a member of the Texas Watercolor Society, National Association of Women Artists, Oil Painters of America, California Art Club, Contemporary Fine Art International and listed in Who's Who in America. I have been in numerous group and one woman shows.
I am the founding Artist/Teacher of Artists Who Teach (www.artistswhoteach.org). This is an on line, non-profit organization for the Artist who is also a Teacher. I started this organization in November 2007 and I now have over 600 artists listed. My work can be seen on my web-site (www.leighnnfoster.com) and on my blog (www.leighannfoster.blogspot.com).
