Carmen Cartiness Johnson
I am a painter and a story teller. I enjoy creating images that speak to the challenges and joys human beings face on a daily basis. A lot of the subject matter I choose is based on my past, how and where I grew up, as well as the places I travel daily. Ideas also come from phrases in songs, poems, and proverbs, as well as novels and movies. All provide inspiration for what eventually ends up on canvas. My ultimate goal is to give the viewer situations in which they can relate.
The majority of my work is done using acrylic paint.
