About Cindy Johnston

Born and raised in northern Alberta, Cindy's only exposure to the art world was her mother who dabbled in painting. There were no art galleries or shows for encouragement. In Secondary school, art was not on the curriculum, so in University, Cindy pursued her interests in science, literature and teaching. Her art interests began in 1995 with a watercolor course given as a gift from her mom. From there the love of painting evolved to acrylics and mixed media with their deep vibrant colors and rich textures.

Her recent work is made up of bold colorful abstracts, textured still lifes, landscapes, and animals. Her preference is for structured compositions, strong textures, and a modern palate filled with vivid color. Her use of acrylics is often enhanced by inks, pastels, watercolors and exotic and antique collage papers. Her goal is to evoke a strong emotional response from her viewers, and to imprint a long-lasting image in their minds. She is not shy to reveal the darkness that lives within us next to the light. She treats each piece like a baby being let out into the world carrying a little piece of her soul with it. She is happy to see them go as a way of sharing herself in a very personal way with others.

'My work reflects very strong senses of mood and emotion; my goal is for the viewer to react in some way to my art. I like my pieces to have a sense of history and time. I use rich colors, a mixture of textures, and sometimes script to develop my ideas. In photography, I like to capture moments that seem small, but often speak volumes.' I am happy to announce that I am now an active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists, Fraser Valley Chapter.
