Learn more about Aaron Foster of HGTV's FreeStyle.
A native of Northern California, Aaron Foster attended the University of California at Davis where he majored in both U.S. history and bicycle racing. Following graduation and the profound lack of offers from professional cycling teams, he found himself managing the office of a small wholesale home furnishings company. One year later, he and a friend co-founded Relish in Atlanta, Ga., a company that represented artists and home furnishings manufacturers. During his five years at Relish, his interest in design flourished. Surrounded and inspired by all that creativity, he began creating artwork with vintage license plates.
Aaron has always enjoyed finding new and sometimes unexpected uses for old things that might otherwise be tossed aside. From license-plate art to his frequent use of unique industrial objects in home design, he loves to surprise people. "I don't think there is such a thing as rules when it comes to designing a home, or the things in it. If something works, then it is right, no matter what convention might say."
After Aaron moved to LA to continue his artwork and interior design he also pursued his lifelong dream of being an actor. One experience on stage was all it took to convince this multitalented artist that he had found a new home. He is finalizing a screenplay which he plans to produce, direct and star in. When he's not following Bob Dylan around on tour, you can find him in his studio snipping, cutting and creating and sometimes playing his own guitar.
