About the artist:

After graduating from Trent University, Johnston’s sense of adventure took her travelling and led to years spent on a sailboat in the Pacific. Her love of myth and fascination with the human psyche led her to study psychology at the Jung Institute, in Zürich, where she graduated as a Jungian analyst.

Johnston began her early art practice as a jeweler. She was represented in galleries across Canada and participated in shows, including the One Of A Kind show in Toronto. At the Haliburton School of the Arts, she developed skills in drawing and painting and found her place between abstraction and literal representation. The themes that flow through her art explore our relationship with animals, the earth, climate change, and the mystery and challenges in the deep poetic rivers that renew us.
