Johanna Jackson is a multidisciplinary artist renowned for her unique expertise in crafting sculptural and functional objects. Her distinctive signature vessels, reminiscent of vases, jars, cups, picture frames, and other household items, exemplify the core of her artistic vision. Jackson's creative philosophy revolves around imbuing these objects with a significance that rivals traditional wall-bound artwork. She firmly believes that utilitarian objects can transcend their practical purpose and become profound expressions of artistry. In addition to her individual practice, Jackson also collaborates with her husband Chris Johanson on furniture making.
