Biography


For Linda Johnson, the world is a canvas where nature and people come together. Growing up, music, art, and dance were part of her everyday life and she was captivated by the vibrance and complexity of color.
Receiving both her Bachelors and Masters degrees in Fine Art from Long Beach State University, she has focused her passion for art through her travels around the world, accompanied by her sketchbook or easel, brushes, and canvases. Starting with a background in Abstract Expressionism and Photorealism, Linda's love for adventure and nature eventually led her to explore and excel in painting the landscape. Plein air is her forte - and her exquisite scenes from the seaside to the mountains of Hawaii and Southern California form the focus for her loose, lush style.
In the mid-1980s, Linda relocated to Kauai, where she lived and painted for a decade. She currently resides in Oceanside and splits her time between painting and managing an art gallery in Newport Beach. She continues her annual painting treks to Kauai and has created a successful greeting card business that features her bright and exuberant beach and Hawaiian neighborhood scenes. Her paintings are widely collected on the West Coast and Hawaii.
 
Linda is a member of the Southern California Plein Air Painters Association and the Laguna Plein Air Painters Association.
