Since, the late 70's, Johnson has been making paintings considered formal and lyrical. Free-flowing, organic forms drift in and out of her canvases’ planes, creating enticing visual rhythm and movement.The placement of shapes lend the idea of landscapes to these abstracts, yet their enigmatic colors and forms keep the work abstract and modern. Her paintings aim to Post-Modernism with an indulgent chromatic palette.
Her paintings are included in corporate and residential collections, including Boston Consulting Group, Seattle, Deloitte & Touche, Seattle, Nokia, Redmond, Russell Investments, Seattle, Swedish Hospital, Seattle, Allergen, CA, Department of State, Yerevan, Armania and Laos, Vientiane. Johnson is an experienced collaborator with paintings in public spaces, including Capstar Hotels Vancouver, British Columbia, JM Marriot Resort and Spa, Palm Desert, Wyndham New Orleans, and Venetian Macau Hotel.
