About the Artist

As a boy growing up in the country, Bill Foster would spend his days hiking and enjoying the outdoors, so it’s not surprising that his favourite painting subjects are usually from nature. Bill completed the Special Art program at H.B. Beal. During the same period, he also studied art under Fred McLaren, an alumni of the American Academy of Art in Chicago. Later, Bill graduated from Fanshawe College’s Advertising Art program. Bill pursued a successful career in the advertising field and has only recently returned to his love of painting.

Giclée Prints & Custom Panels

Giclée Prints:

Giclée prints are available printed, signed, and numbered on acid free, 100% cotton fiber paper, and printed using archival inks. This creates a museum-quality print. I personally manage every step of the process to ensure a beautiful print truly representative of the original artwork.

Custom Panels:

I build wood panels to custom sizes to best suit the composition of my paintings. The panels are cut, sanded, and fitted to mitered trim which is glued then nailed into place. The surface has four or more applications of gesso, which are sanded in between. Finally, all the sides are hand-painted matte black. All of this labour-intensive work is done prior to beginning the painting. Upon completion of the artwork, a hanging wire is mounted to the back side and the painting is ready to hang.

Commissions Welcome: While original paintings and prints are available for sale, Bill also takes on commissioned pieces. These are custom created to most dimensions and subject matter, including landscape, portrait (person or pet), and architecture.
