Susan Johnson

Susan F. Johnson I’ve always loved nature and being outdoors. Whether it’s hiking, biking or just going for a walk. Nature is always changing and giving us something new and incredible to see. What catches my attention first, is the light and how it plays over landscapes and brings color into shadows and highlights or hides the details. My passion for wildlife is why I became an artist. I am a self taught painter in pastels and acrylics. My goal is to capture the individual character and personality of the wildlife faces I paint and place them into environments in which they live, urban or wild.
