Donna Johnson (1956-2020) was born in Miami, Florida. She began making art in 1995 when she started attending Gateway Arts.
Johnson had a special affinity for art materials and used color and repetitive motifs very effectively. Over the years her abstracted drawings developed into cohesive large expressionistic paintings. Johnson’s work is visually stunning and through her use of color, she created a unique sense of depth. Her work was executed with strong design elements and a keen appreciation for color.
Johnson’s work has been shown at the Gateway Gallery in Brookline, the State House in Boston, the Mall at Chestnut Hill, the Fuller Craft Museum and a solo exhibit at Duffy Rare Violins in Florida.
