Sara Johnson

Sara Johnson, trained in textile design at Winchester and Loughborough Colleges of Art 1972-1976, specialising in weaving. Subsequently she became interested in garden design and landscape painting, a dual career that has its roots in her childhood love of the outdoors and the natural environment. Her work ranges from loose, coloured drawings executed on site, to watercolour and mixed media, semi-abstract paintings, produced back in her studio using sketches, photographs and memory. She is inspired by land and seascapes and rather than producing a literal interpretation trying to convey the spirit and mood of a place. She lived at Bungay in North Suffolk and exhibits in galleries in Norfolk and Suffolk including Snape Maltings Gallery; The Flint Gallery, Blakeney; Gallery East and ArtSpace, Woodbridge; Cambridge Contemporary Art; Garage Gallery, Aldeburgh; The World Land Trust Gallery, Halesworth as well as with the Harleston and Waveney Art Trail exhibitions and has also exhibited with the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour at the Mall Galleries in London. Sara also offers classes in watercolour painting at The Art Trading Company, Bungay. www.sarajohnson-art.co.uk
