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.
