Today we’d like to introduce you to Boo Johnson.
Boo, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I am a painter. I started painting at 15 years old, and it is my passion. I am a trained oil painter I studied art in Rome, New York, and San Francisco. I love working with clients and designers directly. My work is mostly abstract focusing on color and mark making. I pull my creative ideas from nature, music, and whatever intuitive channels I can tune into in the studio. Art is healing, and I really feel like it gives space or home soul and beauty. If you want to collaborate with me, please contact me @ www.boojohnsonart.com.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
What I love about art is the struggle. I learn the most when I am willing to fail. Making creative mistakes is the best because you can always problem solve by working over the mistake. The more layers I create in my work, the richer the piece is most times. Some of my favorite paintings have tons of “failures” underneath them.
We’d love to hear more about what you do.
I am a self-employed artist, and I work directly with Clients and Designers. I think what sets me apart as a painter is I am really invested in what the client is after on an aesthetic level, and I am totally excited about the collaboration aspect. I love looking at the space and inventing a piece for that context.
What were you like growing up?
Growing up I was a total work in progress! I was always up for a laugh and very curious about the world and how I fit into it. Art has truly helped me find my center and healed me. Life is a trip, and I am so grateful that I have been able to create and make art on my path.
