Kimberly Anne Johnson
Artist Kimberly Anne Johnson is recognized for conveying the moods and evocative power of the sea. Her seascapes capture meaningful and mysterious moments that conjure memories for artist and viewers alike. "The natural world and the people around us offer endless wonder, and I am always amazed at art's capacity to connect us all."
Her curiosity for the world and love of the written word led her to a more formal education in English, drawing along the way and never traveling without her journal and her sketchbook. She was a freelance writer for the Washington Post and other publications before pursuing art. On an enlightened day, she approached her grandmother, artist Anita Rae, and said, "I see things in paint. Show me." She has studied under a few well-known artists and continues to travel with sketchbook and journal.
Kimberly Anne Johnson paints representational seascapes, landscapes and portraits in oil. She has shown her work in Maine and Virginia, where she shares her life. She also runs a small non-profit dedicated to the education of young women in Liberia, West Africa, where she spent considerable time.
