Majô L. Foy began drawing and painting in the 1980s when she lived in Paris. Since 1991, she has been affiliated with The Art Students League of New York, where she has studied sculpture, drawing and painting. She currently works as a docent at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. She has numerous paintings in private collections and has displayed her work at Café Mocias, Bettolona and, most recently, at the restaurant Arco Cafe.
Majô paints landscapes, cityscapes, still lifes and figures from observation. Her approach is loose and non-descriptive. She is ultimately looking to reveal the beauty and emotion in all things through the aesthetic elements of painting – expressive brushstrokes, form, space, color and light. In her still lifes, for example, she imbues her forms with emotional warmth and light expressed through her expert use of color.
