Elizabeth Johansson creates charming still life paintings and drawings. Johansson places her focus on delightful objects such as wrapped gifts, spools of cascading ribbon, fine china, blooming flowers and vibrant fruits and vegetables. Her subjects are fluidly arranged on a tabletop or shelf, creating a quietly animated composition. Thoughtful and delicate in her approach, Johansson applies oil to canvas or pastel to paper to achieve pure expressions of the still life.
Johansson’s paintings and works on paper have been featured in solo and group exhibitions at the Currier Museum of Art, DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, and Danforth Museum of Art. She attended the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and New England School of Art.
