Expressive painter and designer, Margy Foster, firmly believes in sharing her talents. Whether inspiring students as an Interior Design instructor for 12 years at Ivy Tech Community College, or donating hand painted creations for community fundraisers while co-owning a Faux Finish studio, Margy’s giving spirit is present in every endeavor she embraces. Her beautiful murals grace several high-profile public spaces in the area.
As an experienced designer, her approachability and warmth is apparent in the inherent way she understands the significance of creating spaces clients can connect with emotionally. She explains, “I find out if my client has something they want to work into the design plan…an area rug, pillows, favorite painting, a vase…anything that has meaning to them. I’ll pull colors, textures, patterns from those objects and build my concept.” And the best part of the process? “When everything comes together and clients fall in love all over again with their home.” Although Margy is a design professional, she also values the personal bonds that form with clients. “One of my favorite things about working with clients is that many times you develop a lasting friendship…there’s a trust that you build, not only because you’re in their home, but you are in their life! I love making homes comfortable and inviting…it’s a great feeling to know your clients value your choices, input, and ideas for their home.”
