Art by erica johns


After a rich and varied life as a performer, I now have the opportunity to paint and share my pictures by exhibiting with a number of local art clubs.  I never considered myself naturally talented but have proved by my continuing sales that practice makes perfect.   I started my painting in oils, and this gave me the opportunity to improve my draughtsmanship, and now I have the confidence to work in all media.  As well as oils, I equally enjoy watercolour, gouache, pastel, acrylic and, occasionally, tempera.   I am now also enjoying reduction linocut.                    

Also I now have the technology to produce top quality digital reproductions of my paintings at affordable prices, and they are proving popular too, along with greetings cards and calendars.         


Painting has become my obsession.
