My Visual Journey
Traci Johnson was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. Johnson specializes in textile design, installation, and sculpture. Johnson has shown at numerous galleries including Art Port Kingston, Sweet Lorraine Gallery, Micheal David & Co, Museum at FIT, and F.I.T. Art & Design Gallery. Johnson is a Fashion Institute of Technology graduate majoring in Fine Arts with a minor in Art History. Their concepts are driven by mental health, art, and fashion as therapy subcultures. Johnson creates a healing space for themselves and others within their work, essentially a safe space. They are deeply affected by traumas and how the human mind, soul, and body can be soothed by a moment. As they discover ways to comfort themself, their art emulates a calm, euphoric space. Johnson also brings themselves into the painting hoping to bring a sense of euphoria and vibration within the colors of their craft. They also have a deep emotion towards nature and the world; nature flows organically using every opportunity to grow and branch out into beautiful tendrils worldwide. Its mark is known calmly and fluidly which is an adaptation seen in their paintings. Johnson feels grateful to be able to express themselves through this outlet and will continue to display their art for
the world to see.
