Maggie Johnson
Visual Artist

Objectives

My art defines me. I delight in the beauty of where I live and my artworks reflect the colour, light, pattern and rhythm of this magical place. Colours evoke feelings, light emphases form, and mixed media allows freedom of expression. I’m a huge believer in the magical power of art. I love to be inspired and to inspire others to discover their own creativity.
