Lynn Ann Johnston
I have always drawn and painted. My parents wanted me to go to Art School, which I did for one semester, but I went with another love: Anthropology. I then went on to get a Master’s in Public History and Museum Studies. But my love for all forms of art stayed with me. When I moved to Kenosha for work, I found Lemon Street Gallery and have been a strong supporter of the gallery and its Mission.
I consider myself more an illustrator than artist. I enjoy painting animals—primates in particular. My works have no agendas or political statements, but are created only to make people smile. I try to focus the viewer on the eyes of my subjects, be it humans or animals. I find the eyes the most beautiful physical part of all creatures.
