About the Artist Joan Foulston

Joan was born in Edmonton, raised in Tofield, Alberta and now resides on a farm near Tugaske, Saskatchewan. She is actively pursuing a career as an artist and has work in private, corporate and government collections worldwide.

An avid naturalist, she has always been keenly interested in both wildlife and art. Early childhood experiences of bird watching, camping and hiking in Canada's majestic Rocky Mountains have been a significant influence and inspiration.

Having painted most of her life, she received formal training at Toronto's Ontario College of Art. Experimenting with a variety of mediums, Joan discovered that rock slices provided a natural background for her work.

Since the beginning of time, images have been recorded on stone surfaces. Using acrylic paint, Joan enhances the image she sees while allowing the beauty of the natural rock to remain.

Each painting is like a fingerprint and is in actuality, a precious piece of this planet. This uniqueness, combined with Joan's sensitivity and attention to detail, brings about a wonderful innovation to the age-old tradition of wildlife artistry.
