Alex Foster is a fiber based artist, living and working in Richmond, Virginia. Foster uses natural dyes and printing with plants on fabric to better understand the natural world. She is fascinated by the power of plants and their ability to define landscape and time.

Alex grew up in Roanoke Virginia and draws inspiration from the rolling wilderness of the Appalachian Mountains. They received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Fibers and Material studies from James Madison University in 2015. A deep love for fabric has led her to work as a studio assistant for Aya Fiber Studio in Stuart Florida, an internship as a costume stitcher for the American Shakespeare Center, and two work-study fellowships at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts.

Foster has exhibited artwork in cities across Virginia and recently taught a natural dye workshop at Fiddlehead Farm and Apothecary. Check outwww.fosterfiber.comto see more of Alex Foster's work and follow @fosterfiber on Instagram to learn more about the natural dye and printing process.
