Cherise Foster Artist Bio:

When I was in Year 9, at the South Axholme Academy School in Epworth, I was encouraged to take Art as an option by my Art teacher. I always enjoyed art but it wasn't until I was in Year 10 that I actually began to believe that I had a talent in this field - especially fine art painting. I found that working with acrylic and oil was the thing I enjoyed the most. I passed my GCSE Art exam with A* (full marks) and was awarded the Fine Art Trophy in memory of Lorna Taylor, a young artist who passed away far too young. I have now gone on to study art at John Leggott College. I gained an A grade in my AS exam (which is the highest that can be achieved) and will begin my second year of studying in September 2013 to obtain my A Levels. I then intend to go on and get my degree in fine art painting. My painting "˜The Garden' was the piece I did for my timed GCSE exam. I entered my first art competition in 2012 at the Dovecote art show in the Doncaster area and was awarded the top three prizes including Best in Show. I have also won on-line art competitions. My work "˜Pebbles' was displayed in the Scunthorpe Museum for two months at the end of 2012. Since taking art as a serious career choice - I have sold original paintings and prints all over the world and my work is now hanging as far away as Australia. Just seeing the beautiful things around me inspires me to paint. As I am a realist painter - if something looks attractive and touches my artistic sole I just want to get it down on canvas. I feel completely at a loss when I am separated from my brushes and paint and find it very hard to sit and relax. I have always got my next painting swimming around in my head - ready to become a canvas reality. My family are also my inspiration. They are my biggest critics as well as supporters and encourage me to push myself. They are always behind my artistic visions and decisions 100%. My favourite piece so far is "˜Kate's Sparkler'. I love the old style of portrait painting and I hope that this looks like a timeless piece which could have been created in a different century. I also enjoyed capturing the wonderment on the child's face whilst she was being watched carefully by her loving father. I am very proud of this piece. I exhibited some of my work at the Parallax Art fair at the end of May and first two days of June 2013. This was held in the Chelsea Town Hall situated on London's Kings Road. I was contacted by the Art Historian Doctor Chris Barlow and invited to show my work. He had seen me in the SAA magazine which I am a member of and have had two pieces published in it to date. I was the only painter to sell original work at the show and actually sold two pieces. I shall be exhibiting there again next year at the same time with the "˜Untitled' Art Fair. I have also been approached by a hotel in Bawtry to show my work and I am currently considering this. The Steel Room Gallery, at Brigg in North Lincolnshire, have also asked me to exhibit my work there in 2015. I also intend to hold an exhibition at the C A McMillan Fine Arts gallery on Bute Street, South Kensington, in 2014 - which I am very excited about. . I hope that when people see my work they will see the world through my eyes and see the beauty in the things we see and don't see everyday. Art is a very personal thing and all artists are extremely protective of their work. I realise that my art will not appeal to everyone but - whatever people's opinions - it doesn't matter because any reaction is a positive thing and art should evoke all different opinions and thoughts. http://cherise-foster.artistwebsites.com/
