M. Frances Foster

Designer, maker and denim enthusiast
based in the middle of the map.

Here I share various visual exercises,
new works, scrapshots of places and things; evidences of life and living
in St. Louis, U.S.A.

A complicated, romantic thing involving
paper scraps, stringed instruments
and phases of the moon

We work in the dark. 
We do what we can.
We give what we have.
Our doubt is our passion.
Our passion is our task.
The rest is the madness of art.


Henry James

The Mourner; Maureen O'hara Mixed Media on Antique Photographs, 7 x 5 Inches


Completely enamored with this half in particular of a series by Alex Gross; a collection of over 20 small mixed media pieces on antique cabinet photographs from the 19th Century. He now offers a selection of the Heroes, Villans and Monsters as limited edition giclee print sets.

His work suggests the unspoken distress of humanity—that, which is understood by all, yet remains hidden from human consciousness.
