John Foster Art…….A new home

Welcome to the new home for johnfosterart.com.

This is a work in progress and will take some time. In the meantime you are welcome to email me and ask about the stone flower sculptures or other the works of art I’ve created. I can then email you photos of pieces in which you might have an interest. Thanks for visiting. I will be posting photos and information here as I can. The format of this site may change as I become familiar with what’s available. Here are some of the artistic works I’ve created recently and in the past.
