About

Heather Rachel Johnston I am a colourist and like to paint vibrant, dynamic work that aims to create an emotional connection. I enjoy the beauty of nature in all its glory and aim to capture moments of time, place, energy and colour that resonate with me. Many of these moments come to me in the most remote and peaceful parts of the British Isles where nature is displayed in its full rugged beauty.

My art is generally not a true representation of reality as I paint primarily to express a feeling or to re-create a visual that I have in my mind's eye. I paint from within and also from photos which I have taken. My current inspiration comes from working from memory of places that make me happy.

Currently my work involves collage. I am both an Artist and a Coach and I have been painting since the year 2000 starting with watercolours and moving into exploring acrylics and oils. I enjoy working in all mediums and like to experiment with different textures, mediums and styles. I live in North Essex on the Essex/Suffolk border and like to travel within the UK to inspire my art. You will see in my series some of the places i have enjoyed going to over the last few years. For me colour is the essence of my art and when I combine that with texture and movement and then I get excited, I like to play with my art and it is all about following my emotions and intuitions.

I started painting as an escape from working in the City of London and having a strong call to be creative. I started though local art classes and under the mentoring of Ray Whyard an artist and local art teacher I became more and more hooked. I subsequently attended two years of courses at Central St Martin's School of art in London.

I have also attended courses with professional artists that inspire me such as David Tress, Ashley Hanson and Paul Wadsworth to name a few!

I also work as a psychologically based coach and organisational development consultant and have a first degree in Economics from the University of St Andrews and an MBA from Henley management college and various qualifications in evidence based people development. Check out mindtrip.co.uk
