Kim Johnson

I was born in Windsor, Ontario, Canada and have spent the better half of my life in the United States. I am currently working in my studio in Jacksonville, Florida.  

I received my degree in Graphic Design from George Brown College in Toronto, Canada and attended Kendall College of Art and Design in Grand Rapids, Michigan for Fine Art and Illustration.

My love of modern art, nature and architecture fuels my design aesthetic. My paintings and collages often have a mix of natural and graphic influences. I love to take natural subjects and re-imagine them into abstract form as well as creating stylized illustrations of everything in the natural world.

In 2013, one of my abstract paintings was commissioned by the Intercontinental Hotel chain to supply art in every room of their remodeled historic hotel in Beverly Hills, CA. My work has also been seen on the Today Show, published in various magazines, blogs and shops including West Elm, Indigo Canada, Elle Decor Germany, Ready Made Magazine, Uppercase Magazine, Print and Pattern and more.
