Beryl Johns
Painter

I mainly draw but also love to paint. Pen and ink and acrylics lend themselves well to what I try to achieve on paper and canvas. These mediums allow for manipulation, and visually say what I am not always able to say in words. My art reflects what I see in myself and others, and my vision of the world. It usually takes on a feminine feel with soft lines that flow in an Impressionistic style. I almost always have women and/or children as the focus in my work. 

The O Bracelet Project: This project allowed me to "come out" as an artist and ultimately begin the healing process that must take place after a loss. When Hurricane Katrina took away a lifetime of art work, I was left wondering, "How do I call myself an artist with no art?" This project forced me to listen to my inner voice and to face the fact that without my paints, brushes, pens, and inks—my friends—I was just a shell of myself.
