"Contrary to recent popular trends, I believe art should reflect constant evolvement within an artist's environment and personal life. In that same vein, my work follows multiple themes unlimited by a strict sense of technique or style. I simply attempt to express reaction to a particular series with whatever imagination or inspiration that moves me."

"Communications"

An American artist and photographer, Sandee Shaffer Johnson has traveled as a photographer/journalist in over 80 countries. Her styles and techniques are varied but include acrylics, collage, watercolor, printmaking and pen & ink; she prefers mixed media work in both realistic / figurative pieces as well as abstract/loose forms.
