Mark D. Johnson

Few things in life give me more joy than creating art. As I gaze at the world around me, I see potential paintings everywhere and thus aspire to be a “painter of everything.” Whether in the studio or the great outdoors the creative process takes me on a journey of discovery full of unexpected twists and turns until I arrive at the destination of a finished piece. I’m not one to shy away from painting challenging subject matter as can be seen in the complexity of my Lynchburg cityscapes, which are perhaps my best- known work.

As a self-taught artist, I’ve studied extensively and learned a great deal through workshops with nationally known artists like Ken DeWaard, Patrick Lee, and Lynchburg’s own Ron Boehmer. I’ve had the honor of receiving many awards through the years at various juried shows in the Lynchburg area, where
I live with my wife Laurel, our two boys, and three cats.
