The Mendocino Art Center, located on the spectacular north coast of California, selects artists to live and work at the Center for 1 to 6 months each year. During April 2019 I had thirty uninterrupted days to develop new cyanotype techniques in this inspiring environment. I’m delighted and honored to be awarded this opportunity for creative exploration.

Artsy Shark feature | july 2018

In July I had the honor and good fortune to be featured on Artsy Shark, a site that promotes artists by publishing individual portfolio articles on them. Since 2010, more than 1,000 artists have been featured! They also share their article on Instagram and Facebook. Very cool.

I love what they said… "Beautiful shades of blue, interspersed with dappled, sunlit imagery create ethereal 'altered cyanotypes' by artist Linda Clark Johnson." Read the rest of my feature by clicking here.

cyanotypes for ucdavis school of nursing

The Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing, part of the UC Davis Medical Center, opened in October 2017 and my work is included in the art collection for this state-of-the-art building.

Seven of my recent "altered cyanotypes" were selected by a panel of judges. I am so excited that this new, rather experimental work was chosen. I sincerely hope it brings pleasure to those who see it.

Art in the collection of Kaiser Permanente, Roseville

Kaiser Permanente recently opened a new Behavioral Health Center in Roseville, California. Four of my pieces were selected for the art collection in the new offices.

All four images are peaceful landscapes and river scenes painted on location in Northern California. I'm so pleased to be able to share my work in this lovely setting.

Pops in the Park Commission

In the spring of 2016, Council Member Jeff Harris's office asked me to create an original piece to promote East Sacramento's Pops in the Park summer concert series.

My collage Harmony was used on a variety of promotional materials for the event and on the June cover of Inside East Sac magazine. The magazine featured an article on me and my work and as a result I met some lovely new followers!

Archival limited-edition prints of Harmony are available.

guest speaker | Open Show Sacramento

Open Show Sacramento offers the local community of visual photographic artists and storytellers a forum to present their projects in engaging conversation.

In November 2016 the evening's theme was Alternative Photographic Processes. I was invited to join the panel of 4 presenters to share my cyanotype mixed media work. It was an honor to be included!

Royal Robbins | illustration

During 2015, my image of Half Dome in Blue was selected for use on hang tags for the women's spring clothing line for Royal Robbins. I painted the original watercolor en plein air from Curry Village in Yosemite Valley in the summer of 2012.

Royal Robbins is an "active lifestyle apparel company for rock climbers, adventurers and travelers" in Modesto, California. Founder Royal Robbins was a legendary rock climber and environmental activist with deep connections to Yosemite. This was the first time one of my watercolors was used as an illustration.
