Biography


Gretchen Johnson’s art career began with a painting class at the University of Washington when she was ten years old.  Her love for all things creative is framed by her passion for great design.  Whether painting, designing a home interiors, or arranging flowers, it is her passion to create work that stands on its own, but belongs to the surroundings. 
 
Gretchen lives in Sun Valley, Idaho where there is painting inspiration all around the area.  As a representational alla prima painter, she strives to capture the light and shadows as they fall over her subject.  She is drawn to a painterly style that is both beautiful and exciting.  She has shown her art throughout the Pacific Northwest and pieces can be found in personal collections from coast to coast.
 
In addition to painting, Gretchen enjoys helping clients through her design business which she opened in 1989. Her work has been featured in Better Homes and Gardens publications, French Country Style publication, and the book, Great Country Style.
