Lynne St Clare Foster
Adjunct Professor - CCE
I live and work as an illustrator in New York City. Having received my BFA from Pratt Institute and MFA from School of Visual Arts where our program focused was on “Illustration as Visual Essay”. It was there I became entranced with storytelling in sequence. My illustration is based on the conceptual portrait, and is where idea and form converge. Through investigation combined with surface building, I attempt to translate raw emotion onto the visual image. My work as an illustrator informs, enlightens, amuses, entertains and even disturbs. My clients have included. Cincinnati Magazine, Delaware Today Magazine, Congregations, Main line Today, The Indypendent, The Museum of Natural History, and The Red Betty Theatre . My work was included in Artists Against the War, a publication of poems and images depicting illustrators views on war. My photography has been included in one woman and group exhibitions including, The Malcolm X Shabazz Center and Arthouse New York. I teach at Pratt Institute. and The City College of New York. I sit on the board of directors of The Society of Illustrators and am the founder of the Societies’ Tuesday Jazz Sketch nights, .
