Beverly Johnson's Studio C

Artist of Silk, Acrylic and more

Artist Bio

At an early age, while living in the San Francisco East Bay, Beverly Johnson began to realize the beginning of her creative nature.   She studied oil painting starting in high school and has explored various mediums over her years as wife and mother of 3. A patient and gifted teacher, Johnson has taught art privately to many local area youths.  Today Beverly displays her works at the Valley Art Gallery and in her working studio, Beverly Johnson's Studio C, located at 125 W. Clark Avenue in Old Orcutt, CA.  Currently, Johnson devotes herself to both the acrylic pour and silk mediums.  Her acrylic pours burst with vibrant color and contrast that draw one in to take a closer look. Johnsons complexly layered abstractions on canvas suggest beaches, desert landscapes, and even waterfalls reflecting a fiery summer sky.  She also paints on silk, creating scarves and silk mounted on canvas.  The playful silk work has a stained glass quality and designs that include wine glasses, central coast rolling hills, and other subjects of interest.  The artist says of her work, 'I love the element of surprise in my work.  It adds challenge to the creative process and feeds my soul'.

Beverly is currently offering classes in both silk and acrylic pour in her studio.
