Jane Johnson

member artist, on view through January 31, 2021

"I paint the memories of my time spent in nature. Images evolve over many short sessions of painting with forms emerging from remembered experiences. My use of expressive, bright colors are the manifestation of the joy of living in a place with easy access to parks and trails."

"Circles frequently appear in my paintings and may symbolize a hole in a tree, the center of a flower, a rock, or a more intangible idea such as a soul. I love to paint the mysterious, ever changing horizon of Lake Superior. I walk the beaches along the shore making discoveries of interesting rocks, gnarled drift wood, and wave tumbled discarded items."

"My hope is that the viewer will find their own story in my paintings and experience the peace and happiness that is found in nature."


I have a studio in Minnetonka, MN, and participate in mentor sessions at the Grand Marais Art Colony. I exhibit frequently at the Hopkins Center for the Arts and Minnetonka Center for the Arts. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin Madison with a B. S. In Art Education and have shared my art teaching talents with children and adults through programs at Hopkins Public Schools and my Unitarian Universalist churches.
