I received my MFA in Medical and Biological Illustration from the University of Michigan. Foerster Illustration Inc was formed in 1990, and has been the vehicle for my professional work.
I enjoy all natural media, particularly pen & ink. Ironically, I became an early adopter of digital media, and developed a number of techniques that I shared in professional workshops across the country.
That led to many years as an instructor and professor: at Colorado State University, the Medical College of Georgia, and most recently the Savannah College of Art and Design. It's been a grand privilege to work with so many brilliantly talented students over the years.
That effort continues as I work toward creating an online teaching and professional resource: protutorial.com. It's an ambitious task that will include tutorials, a business-related blog, and a private social aspect that will allow for discussion and feedback – email me if you'd like to be notified when it launches.
For nearly three decades of teaching and doing, I have never lost my love of drawing, of life, and of bringing that passion to others.
