This is the website of Scottish born Artist Anna Johnson. Anna wears various different caps, sometimes several at once. Her work varies from Fine Artist/printmaker to Illustrator, always with a quirky view of the world, from Photographer to Digital artist to Etching Specialist. In the past she has been an Art Therapist and more recently she was responsible for creating Green Door Printmaking Studio, which is Derby’s only open access printmaking workshop for practicing artists.

Like Klee... my pencil takes a line for a walk to see what will happen. I love the element of chance in creativity and often use Photography or Collage to produce an idea. I am fascinated by the fleeting nature of life and the fingerprints of past lives. My work feels and reaches for fragments of memories intuitively. It has a voice of its own, because my style is individual and unusual, based on my own life experience and my dream journal of unconscious thought. There is a veil on the spirit which, if lifted, will show the tattered threads of memory spiralling upwards towards an image. These are works with a modern voice; always interweaving the narrative of the storyteller-illustrator to recreate lost voices.
