"This lake in southern New Mexico in wintertime has muted earthy colors," says artist Heather Foster. "There is a lot of strife with local ranchers surrounding the reintroduction of Mexican gray wolves. I sat and pondered man's connection to nature. It seems to be represented by the water itself. In looking across the lake, the wind blows gently creating small ripples. In observing water, the viewer can see the surface, what lies beneath, the effect of the wind, and the reflection of surroundings and sky all at once."

Heather Foster

Santa Fe, New Mexico

Artist Heather Foster captures an enduring image of the West. She paints the dramatic landscapes and stalwart animals she encounters on her adventures to ranches and rodeos. Heather says she has always known she wanted to be an artist. As a child, she spent her weekends and summers riding the bus into Philadelphia to attend art classes at Philadelphia College of Art, Moore College of Art, and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. Over the years, she's moved around the country quite a bit and done many jobs - everything from driving a pedicab (a giant tricycle that transports passengers) to art restoration and conservation (for one project, she unstretched and then restretched a $17 million painting that would not fit through the door of the buyer's house). The one constant though, no matter where she lived or what side jobs she held, she always made space and time to paint. Today, she works from a home studio in Santa Fe, painting from thousands of reference photographs she shoots on her travels. Her artwork has been featured in the magazines Southwest Art, American Art Collector, and Western Art Collector, and published in the books Art Journey New Mexico and The Book of the Horse.
