Art class made my future possible. I always
wanted to be a fashion designer but I didn't
even know it was a career option until I
took art. Even though I was only in art
class my senior year of high school, the
influence was rapid and substantial. I had
no prior fine arts training, but told Mr.
Foster what I wanted to do with my life and
he guided me the entire year, helping me
build the right portfolio to apply to art
school. I went on to earn a combined
Scholastic and Artistic Scholarship from the
Savannah College of Art and Design, and
continued my education at Parsons New School
for Design in New York. Taking art was the
best decision of my life; I owe my career to
it, and especially to Mr. Foster.

discovered that I had a passion for Visual
Effects the day I opened the door to Mr.
Fosters Art Room. I learned that the
possibilities of creation were endless.
Computer Generated Art is the new way of
telling a story. Which all led me to a
career in VFX.
Foster found the perfect school for me.
