Doug Foltz, a native of South Miami, has spent much of his life exploring the water, the horizon and relationship between the two. Those elemental moments of sky and water—and the space in between—form the foundation for his exploration as a painter. Based in realism, his style intentionally and easily departs to assimilate a more abstract character. His paintings are a collection of personal views associated with life experiences: the explorations of time and place as well as the return to familiar horizons.
Much of Doug’s work revolves his love of water. It’s about being filled with awe and humility at the sheer beauty of the water, land, sky and everything on the horizon. Add to that the warm feeling of coming home, and Doug’s majestic paintings say it all.
Doug holds a Bachelors of Environmental Design and Architecture from Auburn University and has enjoyed a 25-year career as an architect, graphic designer, visual communications strategist and corporate communications consultant. He has been painting and drawing since childhood and his work hangs in collections across the United States and the Bahamas. Doug is a well-rounded creative person who is also a talented musician.
Doug currently shares his time between Georgia, the beaches of Northwest Florida, Maine and the Bahamas (when he can get there.)
