"My work explores memory, sensation and emotion evoked by a painting. I strive to strike a chord of memory, a place, a time."
I am a painter based in Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA. Born and raised in New Mexico, I split my time between New Mexico and France, where I obtained my doctorate degree at the Sorbonne in 1997. I have been painting seriously since the late 1980's, and have exhibited throughout the US as well as in France and Germany. I work in oil primarily, but also pastel.
I dream my painting inspired by image, and strive to capture the dream on canvas.
'In Johnson's paintings, billowy clouds hover over the horizons, rivers shimmer with life and snow-capped mountains rise to majestic heights.'
