JACKEE JOHNSON MAY 2019
Mixed Media Artist
Art is never confined to any particular style or space
As a self-taught artist, I consider myself a vessel who is utilized to create instinctively. My most important goals are to make a profound aesthetic statement. My subjects include women, children and families. Working with vivid colors and symbols. Often I incorporate fabric, beads, jewelry and found objects in my pieces. Creating art with a visual appeal as well as tell a story through symbolism. While working with a variety of mediums, I continue to explore and add new versatility to my skills.
Inspired by... 2019, I have the honor to acknowledge my appreciation for some of the master artists and crafters I have in in my world. Those who inspire me with their creativity, use of ethnic heritage, lines, patterns, color, fiber and symbolism.
David MacDonald: Inspired by his use of his African heritage incorporating, his compassion for intricate details. The continuous flow of the lines and patterns in his work.
Juan Cruz: A mixed media art inspired by his symbolic use of culture, color, patterns and movement. His images start with a thought then create itself.
Vanessa Johnson: Griot, performance artist, writer, teacher and mixed media artist. She understands the true potential of fiber and fabric manipulation. She always inspires me to tell a story and use color to no end.
Thank you all for being a good mentor and friend.
