Rural Art ​

& Animal Portraiture

Kitty Johnson grew up in tidewater Virginia where her appreciation for natural beauty began. Life near the water instilled perspective from which to view and interpret nature that has influenced her art. Living now near the Blue Ridge of Virginia, her eye turned to her rural surroundings. Her art reflects the farm animals and rolling hills surrounding her…a love for animals leads her to look deeply into still life moments found in fields and barns to reveal emotive scenes. Her hope is to capture the distinct presence that exists behind the eyes of animals.

“Through her use of color and light, Kitty is dedicated to making paintings that pull you closer to create a connection with the subject”

A percentage of proceeds go to support Peaceful Fields Sanctuary, a vegan farmed animal sanctuary in Winchester, VA.
