Growing up, Foslien first became interested in art through the influence of his artist father. He decided to study art while attending Muse Academy in Baltimore, Maryland, with a concentration on graphic arts and three-dimensional design. After school, Foslien worked as a production artist and graphic illustrator in the aerospace industry for six years before pursuing a career in fine art.

The exhibit will remain on display through Sunday, Aug. 18. The next featured artist in the gallery’s Summer Art Series is Angie Whitson, whose exhibit opens Wednesday, Aug. 21. Solvang Antiques is located at 1693 Copenhagen Drive, Solvang. Call (805) 686-2322 or visit for more info.
