Shannon Johnston
In addition to being an artist, I am a daughter, sister, friend, introvert, teacher, student, feminist, collector, maker, consumer, and nail-biter. I'm afraid of whales but not spiders. I like to knit, do yoga, and cook, but not clean. I'm a caffeine addict, pet/house/baby sitter. I have road-rage and a slight obsession with over-priced shoes. All of this informs my practice.

It is engagement within and reflection upon community, both large and small, that ground my creative practice. Repetition, generosity, and regeneration drive my making. Collection that borders compulsion builds my palette and ritual forms my process.
