Having been trained at The American Academy of Art, Chicago and the Kewaunee Academy of Fine Art, Mollyâ€™s strong educational background gives her a solid understanding of the subject matter yet her works possess a sensitivity of captured moments that engage the viewer.
Johnson lives in Northeast Wisconsin where subject matter abounds. She often paints the farmlands, small towns and beautiful scenes along the shores of Lake Michigan.
Aside from being the owner and Executive Director ofÂ TheÂ Academy of Fine Art, Molly teaches watercolor and oil painting for Northeast Wisconsin Technical College and fine art classes for all ages in her studio. She actively participates in events sponsoring the growth and availability of the arts for all people. Johnson accomplishes this through volunteering on boards and committees and donating her artwork to raise funds for various causes.
