Erin Fostel is a visual artist based in Baltimore, MD. She creates charcoal drawings on paper, depicting the urban landscapes of cities, the wild landscapes of nature, and the private interiors of home.

"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."
