"Unlike a traditional landscape artist or photorealist, Fostel’s drawings of landscape and architecture are designed to communicate the mixed feelings that each place inspires. Although all of her drawings can be considered beautiful and technically accurate, Fostel’s most successful works are often mysterious and haunting reminders of the human beings she chooses not to depict."
