Doug Foltz SaltCrust Studios Painting

I find great peace and power in nature… and great energy in curiosity and discovery - of any kind.  I am fascinated with water and light and believe that composition is king.  I see graphic form and shifting light in almost everything and try to open new views of both the expanse and the detail of the coastal landscape.   I think of my work as "interpretive", easily departing to explore more abstract or distant characters... but usually returning to a representative home… less about the way a place looks, than the way it makes me feel.

Born and raised by rebellious New England parents in Miami, Florida.  Bachelors of Environmental Design and Bachelors of Architecture - Auburn University.  Just over forty years in creative and management roles as architect, graphic designer, painter, photographer, branding and visual communication consultant.

 

I have been painting and drawing since childhood and am fortunate to have work hanging in private and corporate collections from Seattle to the Bahamas and northern Europe. I currently work from studios in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida - where I live happily with my wife Alecia and Airedale Stella – and in regular sessions on the southeast Georgia and Central Maine coasts.

There is great joy in exploring new places - both literal and figurative... finding something new about the world, and more importantly, the relationship you share with it.  Painting has long been a way for me to indulge that exploration and I work hard to nurture the creative spirit in everything around me.
