About the artist:

Johnston began her early art practice as a jeweler and participated in shows and galleries across Canada including the One Of A Kind show and the Outdoor Art Fair in Toronto. At the Haliburton School of the Arts, she developed skills in drawing and painting, locating her place between abstraction and literal representation.

Themes that flow through her art include our relationship with animals, the earth, the climate crisis, and underneath all, the mystery and challenges in the deep poetic rivers that renew us.
