About

Stephanie K. Johnson is a classically trained artist, living in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Her oil paintings invite viewers to experience the glow and mystery of the old masters. She has always been inspired to use vibrant colors in her pieces.

Stephanie’s career began at a very young age. At twelve she entered her first gallery; Artisans on Taylor in Port Townsend, WA, and by fourteen Stephanie had incorporated her own business.

Many say Stephanie is “…too young to have such maturity, yet her skills defy age and time.” Stephanie is an artist with the talent to succeed and the courage to press forward.
