I am pleased to tell you that Ann Johnston will be featured in an upcoming interview. So look for that soon.

Ann has lots of news to share, new exciting things going on. Want a little preview?

She has built a beautiful light filled workshop on her property. It is set in such a lovely tree lined setting in beautiful Oregon.

As many of you are aware, Ann has spent a great deal of time traveling to teach workshops and classes.

Here’s the great news, she will be using that beautiful new workshop to conduct workshops and classes. The really exciting part is that she will have small intimate groups  which will allow for  personal attention, She’ll have more information to share soon. For now,  here’s a quote that  will peak your interest, it did mine:

About Myself & My Approach Art has always played a role in my life, in one form or another. My family is filled with many artist's, so my love of art came naturally. By my teens, I had narrowed my focus to painting. I decided I was going to become a serious painter. I joined the Las Vegas Artist's Guild at 15, the youngest member at that time. I've continued to paint throughout my life. On occasion I've sold my work, but I had more important priorities, I was raising my children, part of that time as a single parent. My circumstances have changed, the kids are grown and I have more time for Art. Art is a form of therapy for me. I was introduced to quilting & fell in love. In time I missed the creative freedom painting made possible. Then I discovered mixed media fiber art, I was home. MY APPROACH TO ART It's the creative process that holds the greatest attraction for me. Starting with a tiny seed of an idea; vague and blurred around the edges, I follow where that leads. My approach is an instinctual one. Generally, I do little pre-planning. I make creative decisions, choices, directions to take as they present themselves. This approach can lead to quite a few changes in the direction the quilt takes. The outcome can come as a surprise. I love that element of surprise! Sometimes everything just comes together & I think to myself, "this is one of my better ones". when that happens, I can’t wait to show someone. I feel like a six year old, running home from school, a drawing in hand, excited to show Mom. At those times. I'm smiling like the Cheshire cat. I’ve had work published in several magazines., which is gratifying. But the most gratifying thing is having clients be really happy with their purchased art quilt.

  1. The working with other artisans here makes me so nostalgic for my associates at the Middle Georgia Art Association in Macon, GA, where I plan to visit in April, 2012. How they would love to travel at warp speed to your workshop!
