artist becky fos

 





​A New Orleans resident, Becky Fos is a bit of a Renaissance Woman.   Fos is a popular artist in the Big Easy with a streak of burning creative energy rivaled only by her daily goal of living an active lifestyle.   Through her constant healthy pursuits she has been nominated as a Brigade Ambassador for  Evamor Alkaline Water as well as a Store Ambassador for Lululemon Athletica New Orleans.

Becky Fos’ works are simply signed B. Fos.  Her impasto technique, applying wet, undiluted oil paint with her palette knife, is unapologetically bold and energetic. She uses color as  a forefront in her pieces that allow them to come to life, evoking an instant sense of happiness.  Over the years, her layering of oil paint and colors have become heavier and thicker, with some of the oil paint being raised half an inch off of the canvas.  Her art can be found at her gallery space at Gallery B. Fos on famous Magazine Street.  


“For me, painting is the most authentic way to express myself," says Becky.  "I am not good with words, so I just want to keep this short. I feel enormously blessed to live in New Orleans.   And I’m inspired by everything .  I gather boundless inspiration from all corners of this wild, beautiful, and colorful city.  New Orleans is my muse.  I try to transform the spirit of my inspirations into oil paintings with my trusty palette knife.  I choose the colors on my palette, but in the end the colors really choose me.”  Foss adds, "Being offered the opportunity to create a unique painting for the inaugural NOLA Mac N Cheese Fest poster is an exciting one for me and I look forward to sharing it with everyone!"
