Kim Johnson's Profile

About

I was a painter for most of my artistic life. I have always been fascinated with color. How it acts, looks and is made. As a painter I never explored how the Old Masters and Craftsmen made their colors. That's what I wanted to do. Literally make color from scratch. Traditional dyeing methods using naturally occurring materials as allowed me to do what I never did as a painter. The desire to learn Natural Dyeing was my gateway into Fiber Arts...which shortly became a passion.
