About Stephanie Goos Johnson

I am privileged to paint & raise my three boys on Far Fields Farm in Washington, CT. Life is beautiful and always messy. Alongside the chaos, I try to be creative every day. My professional foray into the arts began with a BFA in Graphic Design. I started painting out of a longing to express the eternal cycles of nature and their reflection of the inherent changes in life. I hope my work reveals the moments in nature (and in life) that can change from dramatic to peaceful and back again.

Thanks for your sweet comment, Stephanie! I do use a Wacom, but it's a pretty basic model, the Bamboo Touch, I've been debating updating to something a bit nicer but this definitely beats using a mouse to draw :)

Thanks for the kind words Stephanie! Flora Fantasy was created with acrylic inks recommended recently by Annie Seaton. It was my first day trying them out and I'm hooked. I paint with them just as I would with watercolor. Your landscapes (oils I'm assuming??) are beautifully dreamy. Nice work :)

Thanks so much Stephanie! I don't currently, but have tried it out before. I wasn't too comfortable with it so most of my work is hand painted/drawn and scanned or done with the mouse :) Love your "social media button" journal - cute idea!
