July’s Artist in the Gallery Is Jennifer Michelle Johnson with The Jovial Frog Studio

I am a self-taught artist, born and raised in Southern California. I was a commercial illustrator for many years before I made the transition into fine art. My range of styles and mediums is rather eclectic. I work in watercolors, pen and ink, oils, polymer clay and mosaic. I have an extensive supply of found objects that I enjoy incorporating into my sculptures. I love using textures for bases under oils. My true passion is illustrative watercolors on paper although I do appreciate and revel in the challenge of watercolors on canvas. While I always like ‘doing my own thing’ I also enjoy taking on commission projects and giving just about any idea a try. I have recently moved to Coeur D Alene and I am loving it!
