Amanda Johnson’s exuberant and elegant paintings have quickly gained acclaim and respect. The variety and breath of her work has contributed to her solidity in a number of communities. In Delray art galleries you can find her custom made beach art that captures the essence of coastal living. In Palm Beach art galleries her contemporary and bohemian artwork charms others with themes of luxury and culture. Then there’s the cutting edge new modern artwork that Amanda has featured in galleries throughout South Florida from both independent projects and work she had done with other eclectic artists that share her passion and vision.

This recognition has inspired her continued work in the realm of fine art, where she often blurs the lines between fine art and design, creating instruments of self-expression and joy. Her hand-painted lampshades, custom textiles, and wearable art are truly imbued with the code of the human beat. "Fine art should transcend time, therefore I draw heavily on historical influences in Greek Mythology, the human condition through the ages, and self-reflection. My work documents moments of divine intervention, mortal struggle and triumph, and the process of my own personal life. My subject matter is often women as powerful mythological figures. In my compositions, I explore these themes using simplified shapes, intricate patterns, and color so that the viewer can interpret their 'own-ness' within the work." – Amanda Johnson

Amanda Johnson

Artist Amanda Johnson’s focus is primarily on fine art through her colorful paintings. Her canvases range from her tiny “candies” to her feature works, which inspire some of her patrons to design entire living spaces to theme. Thus, Amanda’s early love of textile and design was rekindled, and she answered the call with an ingenious reply; a textile collection created using her original paintings. Taking a cue from art history and historical embellishments, each fabric begins as a painting that is worked with gold and silver leaf. Christian Siriano of Project Runway fame has become an avid collector of Amanda Johnson's work - particularly her pillows and plates. Also borne of her mixing of fine art and design are fine art lamps that have been featured in The Baltimore Museum of Art. Her line of luxury fabrics is quickly gaining the attention of interior designers and the fashion garment industry. She is a 2014 award recipient of ASID, Maryland for one of her textile collections. While Amanda has been busier than ever in the last few years in her immersion in her paintings and their natural extensions, she has been prolific in her participation in charity and society events, group exhibitions, commissions, public works, and serves as a member of the board of directors at the Wayside House, Delray Beach, Florida.

Artist’s Background

Amanda's creative aptitude flourished from early childhood. She has developed her innate talent into a refined understanding of composition with a repertoire of work ranging from modern and classical portraiture to abstract studies of light, color, and shape. Her formal education focused primarily on painting, and her love of fashion and self-expression led her to an early career in film and television production where she fulfilled her passion as a successful costume designer and makeup artist. Amanda Johnson is a native of Baltimore and attended Baltimore High School for the Arts graduating with honors and a continuing education scholarship. She earned her BFA and Fine Arts diploma from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Boston and the Tufts School. Soon thereafter she majored in Portrait Painting, continuing her education in Museum Studies at the Harvard Extension School. Miss Johnson then traveled to Greece and studied the history of art, further broadening her formal academic foundation.
