About Amelia

Amelia E. Foster is a visual artist based out of New York City.
Amelia has dedicated her undergraduate years to multidisciplinary learning, gaining her B.S. and B.A, in microbiology and international studies with minors in Spanish and Chemistry. Lured by the prospect of community outreach and environmental education programs, she made her way to Ecuador in 2012. In Quito, Puerto Lopez, and later in the Mexican city of San Cristobal de las Casas, Amelia re-discovered her passion for art, manifesting in two community murals and several commission works. In 2016, she left for Seoul to deepen her understanding of environmental outreach and adolescent education in East Asia. In 2017, Amelia returned stateside to practice fine art. In her years abroad, she was exposed to perspectives and values divergent from those of her childhood in the Pacific Northwest. Amelia taps into these cultural experiences, in conjunction with her multifaceted background, to critically examine perspectives held in her home country.
