Monica Johnson was born and raised on the beautiful Oregon coast, a place she still calls home with her husband, Ryan, her dogs Peanut and Ruby, her cat Iris, and her lizard Leo.
Monica works in a variety of mediums including prismacolor, watercolor, gouache, and acrylic. She attended Portland Community College and Pacific University where she studied figure drawing, sculpture, design, and painting.
Her ideas come from her nieces and nephews, her pets, her dreams, and the beautiful landscape around her. She strives to make art that will inspire children’s imaginations and keep the rest of us young at heart.
