Corrina Johnson

.

Corrina started drawing horses at age 5, and continued throughout school. She received a scholarship to study with a wildlife artist after high school, and attended the School of Visual Concepts in Seattle, studying figure drawing and fashion illustration.

After taking time away from art to get her business degree, she resumed her study of oil painting by taking many workshops across the country with wildlife and landscape artists, and attending courses at the Scottsdale Art School.

After living most of her life in Washington, she started traveling between Phoenix, Arizona and Jackson, Wyoming to do shows, meet other artists and study. It was nice to have the open access to paint the beautiful scenery in Wyoming, and also gather all of the animal reference photos necessary to do her paintings.  Phoenix was always nice to spend the winter in after living so many years with rain and gray skies.  She also lived in Colorado for a few years, and loved the Vail Valley.

Corrina grew up riding horses, and spent many hours riding her horse on Whidbey Island, WA, participating in 4-H and Pony Club events. She currently has an Appaloosa mare that she’s owned for over 20 years.  She and her horse are now living in Jackson, WY.
