Johanna is a creative lady.
In her fine art she blends her love of science and nature with her passion for the human experience and her mediation practice as she paints. She is compelled by the study of figure, landscape and abstract painting and draws on these to create unique works of art each time. She loves color and light and moves in a flurry of serious brush strokes. Painting is her happy place, and a place of renewal as well as where she holds conversations about what she finds interesting and beautiful.
In her day job working as a producer in advertising and marketing, she rolls her sleeves up whenever she can. She loves to make things and collaborate with other people and working in advertising was a natural fit. She grew up in performance for Theater and Music, and took a minor in film at school. Her painting got her started on commercial sets in Los Angeles as a scenic painter. She then found her way home to Minneapolis where she got her start in advertising as an Art Buyer (photo shoot producer) and evolved into broadcast production and social content. She is a hands on creative producer and has been available to do everything from prepping layouts and art directing on set, to collaborating with her painting and drawing for scenic painting and illustration.
She lives and works in the Twin Cities of MN. She is a mom, a gardener, a preparer of food, and often sings or talks to herself. She asks hard questions, is as gentile as she is stern, and looks people in the eye.
