In her artwork, Amy Foster (she/her) explores the intersection of hospitality, nature, and spiritual relationship. With historic ties to iconography and botanical illustration, Amy finds that homemade egg tempera paint best allows her to express her unfolding understanding of God’s character. Amy is an active member of both the artistic community and, as a Christ follower, the faith community of her native city of Pittsburgh. She is a trained spiritual director with a particular interest in retreat leadership. Amy established Contempera Studio in 2020, and under that name, she practices visual hospitality through the artwork she produces for home and liturgical use.
