As a native of South Miami, Doug Foltz has spent much of his life exploring on or around the water. Those elemental moments of sky and water... and the edges between... are the foundation for his exploration as a painter. He is fascinated with expressive composition and holds a deep respect for shifting light... creating paintings that open new views of both the expanse and the detail of the coastal landscape. Often referenced as "interpretive", his work attempts to say as much about the way a place feels, as the way it looks... a collection of personal views - drawn from experience in life and in paint - of willing exploration and constant return to known edges and more familiar horizons. Doug’s education came in Architecture from Auburn University and though he has been painting since childhood, he had a 30 year professional career as an architect, graphic designer, visual communication strategist, and corporate communication consultant. His work hangs in private and corporate collections from Seattle to the Bahamas and in Europe.
He currently works from studios in Atlanta, Georgia and Blue Mountain Beach in Northwest Florida and also paints regularly in Abaco, South Georgia's Hird Island, and the cliffs on the Central Maine coast.
