Sometimes life’s most simple pleasures make the strongest statement, like shopping at an outdoor market or sipping coffee at a street café. Wendy Johnson creates her artwork precisely this way. Simple subjects, shapes and colors to create the essence of the “joie de vie.” Time spent in Provence Tuscany has enabled her to readily transport the viewer to the lands of quaint villages with fragrances of lavender and flowering thyme in the air. In 1990, she opened an atelier and gallery, “The South of France,” in the burgeoning artist colony of Newport Beach, California. Wendy’s paintings are in private and corporate collections throughout the U.S. and Europe.

Wendy’s paintings will be on display at Alta April 1st – May 31st.
