emily donovan (map #121)

St. Paul, MN

Emily Donovan loves to travel, but her heart belongs to Minnesota. The state's North Woods and the cycle of the seasons are both influential and essential to her batik art, which relies on wax and handmade dyes made from foraged materials. Having grown up learning about specialized tools and craft methods from her father, who built custom etching and lithography presses, Donovan studied art history and visual art at the University of Minnesota with an emphasis in printmaking and painting. Her process of hand dyeing creates what she calls a "living mark," tracking the movement and infusion of her pigments into paper fibers and encapsulating her experiences and discoveries in the outdoors.

jane johnson (map #81)

Port Charlotte, FL

My paintings are inspired by nature, play, the moment, and problem resolution. They represent balance, fearlessness, strength, and optimism. I begin each painting by choosing my colors and a feeling I'd like to express, then I go for it, painting quickly before the acrylic dries. As I paint, I paying attention to the parts and whole at the same time until balance is achieved. I paint on a variety of surfaces; canvas, masonite, and Yupo paper a synthetic surface, using many different tools to apply the paint; brushes, brayers, fingers, squeegees, pouring. Through my art I strive to achieve spirit made manifest.

megan johnson (map #44)

Burnsville, MN

I am a local MN, self-taught artist. My primary medium is black and white acrylic paint, with some pops of color in a few of my pieces. I blend the two colors as I go to get the proper shades. My work is realistic with fine detail, yet whimsical, as many of the animals are smiling. The emotion I most want to evoke through my paintings is joy.
