Ryan Johnson
  
As far as I can remember I've been an artist and fortunate enough for me I was encouraged by family to continue in these pursuits. Whether it was school or an art camp I could be found creating away. It wasn't until my senior year of high school where I was challenged to take a more academic approach to my artwork. I progressed a great deal that year and went on to have a piece accepted in a state wide contest to be displayed at The Frisk museum in downtown Nashville. The next fall I was enrolled at Columbia College Chicago where I learned a lot about the creative process but most of all I learned about life. My artwork has many influences but mainly it's my own journey of self discovery that drives me to create these worlds of fantastic imagination.
