This figurative series was created during lock down. Johnson dove deep into his practice and produced an impressive array of works reflecting the simple beauty and pleasure, of what can be imagined as a joyful life.

An award winning artist, Johnson’s interest in drawing and painting brought him to major in art at Reedley Jr College, from which he received an AA Degree in Fine Arts in 1980. He was later accepted and studied at what is now called the California College of the Arts in Oakland, California, majoring in graphic design and painting. Life lead him elsewhere with a Bachelor of Arts in Theology – Catholic Seminary – to a Masters in Social Work.

It was not until his retirement in 2010, that he pursued his original interest in drawing and painting. Johnson’s subject matter ranges from landscapes and seascapes, to abstracts, figurative and portraiture. Tim accepts commission for individual and group portraits.

He is a member of the Artist Council of Palm Desert, Art Alliance of Idyllwild, and Desert Art Center in Palm Springs. Represented by Golden Pine Gallery, Idyllwild, California. Curated by Julianna Poldi.

“I see my journey in art as a continued source of self expression. My goal is for others to see in my work unique perceptions of inner beauty and outer reality. I also wish to connect to what is spiritual and universal in our collective human experience.”
