Amy Johnson

Anchorage, AK

Amy Johnson was born in Charlotte, North Carolina. She received her BFA from the University of Colorado, Boulder, and her MFA from the University of Washington in ceramics. She has an active art career including exhibitions, performances, lectures, and residency programs. Most recently Johnson was a Rasmuson Foundation artist-in-residence at the McColl Center for Art + Innovation in Charlotte, NC. 

Johnson is a multi-disciplinary artist who combines contemporary art and craft to explore the balance between what is real and what is not. She trusts her intuition and experimental tendencies to reconcile the battle between trying to be perfect and the beauty of imperfection.

Her work reflects her life and what surrounds her: cultural expectations for women, living in the north, landscape, isolation, and unfamiliarity. Although many places feel like home, she currently resides in Anchorage, Alaska.
