Victoria Johnson Studio Paintings + Jewelry Artist + Prints: Fine Art in Modern Times (TM)
about the artist
Victoria Johnson is an American artist and painter. Victoria was an organizational consultant managing commercial architectural and design firm and dealer libraries in the Seattle area, before she returned to her professional studio practice in 2000 composing paintings for Lisa Harris Gallery and hotel projects.
To discover Victoria Johnson is to discover a visionary with a sensory approach to experiential color, concept and form. It is said, her paintings evoke the natural world, the land, water, sky, often with reference to West Coast Indian country iconography. The act of painting, the location, the form, the play of variables, often allude to this subject matter. She's a romantic structuralist and conceptualist driven by her passion. Her color palette and imagery is energetic, luscious, and urban.

What LinkedIn members have to say about victoria:
I have no idea why Victoria paintings effects me so strongly, the work puts me into a very lush space. As photographer I usually respond to subjects matter and visual icons in context. Victoria’s work is about a place that I’ve never been and I’m ready to go there. It ‘s rare, the work is completely emotional to me.
Peter deLory, Photographer
Victoria is an artistic genius. She has a completely different eye for the world, and is in many ways a visionary. Her work is original and enlightening, and it makes you think, engage, and ultimately, immerse yourself into the work itself. I greatly enjoy the paintings I've purchased from Victoria, and on many late evenings of work, I've stepped away to peer into them, losing myself in the stimulation and excitement of her creation. Really fabulous, inspired work.
