London born Johanna is based in Walthamstow, east London where she has her studio. Fine Art studies at The School of Art, Architecture and Design (1995-98) were followed by post-graduate courses at two leading alternative painting schools: Turps Banana (2016-'17) and The Essential School of Painting, where she now teaches.
Johanna has exhibited widely in the UK, including multiple times at The Royal Academy of Art and Flowers Gallery, London. She has also shown at Zillah Bell Gallery, Yorkshire and The Contemporary Art Society. Recent solo exhibitions were at House of St Barnabas Club in Soho, and also at John McAslan + Partners William Road Gallery - the latter was an exhibition and fund-raiser in aid of young homeless people in London.
Johanna's work is held in private and public collections, including Whitechapel Gallery archives; The Groucho Club; House of St Barnabas and Soho House, as well as virtual platforms Art Gazette and Go-To Artists.
