David Foster has followed his passion for art since early childhood and has made sculpture his primary art form for more than thirty years. Until 2001, his media of choice were clay and bronze. Then, while on sabbatical in Pietrasanta, Italy, famous for the Carrara marble – used by Michelangelo and other masters – David discovered the excitement of carving marble. He has been returning to Pietrasanta to carve ever since. This has allowed him to develop his passion for sculpting marble, and to become intimately involved in the international community of sculptors with whom he works and exhibits. When not in Italy, David carves at his Lake Tahoe studio.

The subjects of his sculpture reference the human figure combined with a strong preference for design elements of line, shape, interval, space and the resulting dialogue of the play of light and shadow on the surface of the marble.

David teaches in Lake Tahoe and in France, Italy and Greece. His work has been included in group exhibitions in Sacramento’s Crocker Museum, the Museum of Art, Reno, Nevada, college and university galleries, galleries and studios of Pietrasanta, Italy, and in private collections.
