Johanna has been creating personal and professional art for over fifty years. A California native, she is a graduate of San Diego State University with a degree in art/graphic design. While her business of thirty years, McCormick Design, occupies much of her creative juices, she is an avid painter and photographer. She is a member of the Santa Cruz Mountain Arts Center where she participates in numerous classes and shows. Johanna lives and works in Boulder Creek, California.

Having spent much of my life out of doors, my paintings reflect my connection with the landscape as I experience it; whether on my own land, or in some of the most remote areas in the country. That is where I find beauty and where I can make sense of the world.

From a more traditional landscape style, my paintings are moving toward the abstract, or what I call minimalist landscapes. Striving to strip away almost everything recognizable as landscape, I want to reveal just the essentials. Sky and land, coming together as a far-off horizon, and just a hint of what lies between. Then, instead of depicting a particular location, I want the painting to evoke the emotion or memory of place.
