The landscapes that Stephanie Johnson creates in oils invite viewers toexperience the glowand mystery of the old master. Stephanies original inspiration for landscapes came from her first visit to a Hudson River School exibition at the Tacoma Art Museum. The dramatic skies, exquisite detail, and beautiful colors made a great impression on her. The artists from the Hudson River School created large, thematic pieces to show the world the memorable experiences from their journeys. Now Stephanie desires to capture joy she discovers in her travels as they did. Her European cafe and city scenes remind viewers of that special trip where they enjoyed a warm cup of espresso or a long, leisurely stroll down a cobblestone path.
Stephanie's career in art began at a very early age. She sold her first original painting at the Redmond Saturday Market at the tender age of eleven. At twelve, she entered her first gallery and by fifteen Stephanie had designed her own website. Her family generously offers their support, helping her with art shows and galleries. Her home studio allows her to work and create the beautiful landscapes she loves in a warm and comfortable enviroment.
