There is one less artist in the world today. Jillian Johnson, along with Mayci
Breaux, were killed yesterday in my former home of Lafayette, LA. Jillian was a
passionately creative force in town. I've seen her band. I wear t-shirts that
she designed. Please do something creative today in her honor. Because you can.
Because you are alive.
---NUTSHELL BIO--- I earned my BFA from the Art Academy of Cincinnati in 1999 and participated in the New York Studio Program through Parsons. I've schlepped a backpacker's easel across Europe trying to connect to my "painter ancestors"--they weren't kidding about the light in south of France. And if I ever win an Oscar for painting I will thank Vermeer, Kahlo, Hopper, Richter and Barney, to name just a few.
