Portfollio of Recent Student Work

 

MFA, Painting and Drawing, Utah State University
BA, Painting, Drawing, and Printmaking, Northwest Nazarene University

Scott has worked in a variety of two dimensional media including glue and egg temperas, watercolor, oil, and serigraphy. His interest in esoteric and unusual artistic practices has allowed him opportunities to work with iconographers, fresco painters, performance artists, and alchemists. An avid experimenter, Scott uses both ancient and contemporary materials to create nuanced images of the suburban and urban landscape which he has exhibited in solo and juried shows in the western United States. Scott comes to Siena College from Utah State University, where he has served as the Exhibitions and Visiting Artist Program Coordinator, and as a Lecturer in the department of art. Mr. Foster has also taught watercolor and plein air workshops amid the scenic beauty of Utah and Idaho. Scott currently teaches drawing and painting at Siena.
