Kaitlin Johnson is a contemporary abstract painter. After completing her Bachelor of Visual Arts from The University of Western Ontario, Johnson obtained her art teaching degree from the University of Wollongong in New South Wales, Australia.
Johnson cites nature as the primary inspiration for her work, and her artistic practice focuses on teasing out its beauty and raw emotion. Her abstract paintings on canvas are a result of her drawing on rhythms and unique combinations of colour gathered through travel in Africa, India, Australia and Indonesia. She states:
“Mood and moment lead my hand through the canvas, stacking colour in layers – sometimes thick and solid, sometimes thin and sheer. The work changes as the process continues until I come to a place of satisfaction, presented with a unique composition of resonating colours."
Johnson has exhibited her work at numerous galleries in Ontario and in Australia. She currently works from her home studio in Oakville, ON, where she lives with her husband and two children.
