...to artist/writer/naturalist Cathy Johnson's home page. Here you will find free art tips, original art and prints for sale, online art classes, tutorial and resource CDs and downloads, and her recently re-imaged artist's blog , Art, Life and Other Oddities."
Please come visit the "Shed of Reality; a Place Called Sanity"; life in the tiny shed studio built a few years ago to provide a place to write and make art and videos, away from telephones and computers. And do drop by "Starving Artists in the Kitchen," a illustrated blog on good cooking, nutrition, and economy created with love with her husband, Joseph Ruckman.
Johnson has worked with a number of national publishers over the years, including North Light Books, Sierra Club, and Viking Penguin, and creates illustrations in a variety of mediums. She has written 34 books on art, history, and natural history subjects.
Magazine work includes Country Living, The Artist's Magazine, Watercolor Artist, and freelance pieces for many others (see Biography.) She owns and operates Graphics/Fine Arts Press, which publishes books of interest to history buffs and interpreters. In that field, she is most often known as Kate Johnson, a name that stuck when she got into the hobby of historical reenacting 20 years ago.
She sells on eBay at katestreasures -- an eclectic mix of her own books and CDs for artists, original fine art and prints, and art supplies, as well as handmade jewelry, antiques and collectibles.
Please feel free to wander around, look at paintings and illustrations in the online portfolio, read excerpts from her books or magazine articles. For dozens of free videos, tutorials and demos, visit her YouTube channel.
This site will be updated regularly to feature the latest book, new work, new directions, and new, free Art Tips. It is a work in progress, as organic and changing as creativity itself. Please check back often or sign up now for free email updates.
