About Kelly Johnston

I am inspired by the vibrant colors intrinsic to my native Pacific Northwest landscape. From the rich blue, green and golden tones of the San Juan Islands to the pastel lavender and coral shades of a Cascade mountain sunrise, my color palette is directly influenced by my surroundings. Water plays a large role in my life and my work as I live on an island just a short ferry ride away from Seattle with my husband, two children, and our goldendoodle Greta.
