Jessamyn Johns' Profile

About

I am an artist and mother in Portland,OR trying to find the time to do everything I think about. Maybe someday I will, but recently I have mostly just been sewing, taking photos, and enjoying my sweet baby boy. I graduated from Cornish College of the Arts in 2007 where I studied painting, printmaking and photography.


I create art inspired by the simplicity, magic and elegance in our lives. I explore the poignancy of childhood, wanting to understand the world from a child's perspective. I also search for moments in adult lives that reveal the child within.

Though many different media I explore nostalgia. I express awe at the imaginations of children and the wishes of adults with all their dreams, fear and joy.
