BIOGRAPHY

 PAINTER

Henrietta Lawson Johnston

Henrietta Lawson Johnston is a professional artist living in North Oxfordshire. After studying History of Art at university she decided to pursue her love of painting. She spent some months figure drawing at art school in Florence and later trained at the Atelier Canova in Rome, where she chose oils as her medium. 


Henrietta draws inspiration from her love of nature and the fascinating scope of still life, whether it be a simple object, an arrangement on a mantle or a bowl of fruit. Her work is classical in style and her choice of light and tone calm in quality.


She chooses to matt varnish her work, so that while drawing on centuries of tradition in oil painting, the finished piece has a contemporary feel enabling her work to sit well in any setting.


Henrietta also works on commission.
